Romney assails Trump for refusing to release tax returns


WASHINGTON: Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns until after the November election should disqualify him as a presidential candidate, the party’s 2012 standard-bearer Mitt Romney warned Wednesday. “It is disqualifying for a modern-day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters, especially one who has not been subject to public scrutiny in either military or public service,” Romney wrote in a Facebook post. Romney, himself a multimillionaire, said the only logical explanation for Trump’s failure to show his back taxes was that they contain “a bombshell of unusual size.” Trump is a billionaire New York real-estate mogul, whose financial dealings have been under intense scrutiny for years. He said in an interview with the Associated Press published Wednesday that despite pressure to release his returns, he likely will not do so before the November election due to an ongoing financial audit.
