Schumer: If Trump doesn’t release his tax returns, ‘it’s going to make tax reform much harder’

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) is warning that President Trump needs to release his personal tax returns if he hopes to achieve comprehensive tax reform in the coming months.

“It’s going to make tax reform much harder” if Trump doesn’t release his returns, Schumer told reporters Tuesday. Anytime the president proposes something on tax reform, “the average American is going to say, ‘Oh, he’s not doing that because it’s good for me, he’s doing it because it’s good for him.’ So for his own good, he ought to make them public. And the big mystery is why he hasn’t.”

“I think he just has an obligation to come clean. When you clean up the swamp, it’s not keeping things secret and applies to yourself,” Schumer added.

Trump paid $38 million in federal income tax in 2005 on more than $150 million, for an effective rate of 25 percent, and reported a $105 million write-down, according to a copy of his federal tax return revealed last month.

    Mr. Charles Schumer Sir : If Obama would not have stolen billions from the American public it would have made your job much easier.. please comment on this please.

  • juniemoon says:

    Hey Chuckie Cheese, Trump supporters don’t care about his tax returns. Only you and the dimwit party are concerned. It’s just another diversion that we, the people, know the dimwits like to throw around. Screw you and go back to your “safe places” and drink all the hot cocoa you need.

    This Schumer Goon is Dumber than a Rock obama had all his Tax Records when Trump threw his Hat in the ring Lerner was in his pocket if there was anything in them to hurt Trump’s Run it would have been leaked long before now!! I want to see Schumer’s Tax Returns of course they probably have been altered to look good. Crooks & Traitors

      Excellent point.

  • NM Leon says:

    A real estate developers tax returns would be a nightmare for the average person to understand. Deductions and expenses carried over multiple years on different projects. It would be very easy for evil lefties like Chucky the Clown to point to a single piece of an incredibly complex puzzle and claim whatever lie he wants is true.

    Trump is too smart to release that kind of ammunition to his enemies.

    1. Retired says:

      The Media would do the same .

      1. NM Leon says:

        Yeah, I would include much of the media as his enemies too.

    Don’t the Libs. get it. They are not in charge. They don’t get to set the agenda. I have had enough of these ding bats thinking they control everything or nothing gets done until they say so. They lost, it’s time they realized it. By the way Tax Returns are personal. It is none of their business. The Pres. has paid more in taxes then Schumer will earn (legally) in his life time. The President is Trump. Live with it. Stop acting like a spoiled bunch of brats.

  • randy jackson says:

    So is this a bribe or a threat?
    Possibly either should land Schmucky in jail.
    If I were Trump I’d tell Schmucky that my tax return is personal, private, confidential information—–and—-to go screw himself!
    Another democrat example of some loudmouth demonrat spouting hot air.
    Where was Schmucky trying to reveal Ovomit’s sealed records? The ones that showed Odumbo being born in Kenya, receiving a scholarship only available to foreigners, birth certificates of his adopted kids etc etc

    If Trumps tax write downs are legal then they need to shut up. I am going to go out on a limb and say that if they checked out Chuck Schumer’s income and where he got it and what for they would more than likely find some discrepancies. I know they al try to hide their illegal income but it is somewhere and they can find it.******** When are they going to release Obama’s sealed records???

    1. gvette says:

      They, Soros, spends millions keeping Barry’s records sealed. You’ll never see them.

  • Nana Monster says:

    This guy is a moron. It’s the same crap they pulled on Mitt Romney and they’re doing it “because it works” on Trump. I’d like to see Chuckie Schumer’s tax returns and maybe DiBlasio’s too. How about Ben Carson finding $520 BILLION in discrepancies in the HUD program…now where or where did THAT money go??

  • justinwachin says:

    I honestly don’t care about Donald Trump’s tax returns. Chucky Schumer is a relic of the failed Democrat Party. He has been part of driving this nation deeply into debt. Maybe we should ask to see Chucky’s bank accounts and see if he mismanages them the same way he has helped mismanage the nation’s finances.

    I will base my support for any tax measure on how it affects me. I don’t need Chucky telling me what is good for me. Unlike Chucky and the Capitol Hill career politicians neither I nor President Trump have been part of driving our nation $20,000,000,000,000 into debt.

    1. dmttbt says:

      I always thought the IRS was capable of verifying tax returns. Maybe not since people like Harry Reed and chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton are complaining about their opponents tax forms.

  • mudguy1 says:

    Hey Chucky Boy if you would have supported a flat tax nobody would have to worry about tax returns. What does Trump’s tax returns have to do with doing whats right to keep our country safe? Most of America could care less about them. Most of America would love to see you retired, and out of the Senate and of Washington DC.

    1. dmttbt says:

      We in this country are a product of what is good for the republican or democrat party, not what is good for the people. The people are not even considered in the process.
      **** See I just did it myself, I stated the republican or democrat party. It is not either of those, those are two groups who have told the people that one is good and the other is bad. In the beginning that may have been true but I doubt it. We have had liars in politics from day 1 and we have the largest group ever at this time. They have passed laws and regulations for everyone only they exempt themselves. There needs to be changes and I don’t know if those changes can wait to be done by elections. There should be changes to what this group of a holes have done and I don’t see that coming. When we say term limits I was not for that because we already have the vote but those who are going to run for office are clones of what we already have. We need massive change.

  • Deb Sunshine Hanna says:

    Typical of the democrats. Ignore the true tax evaders and go after those they don’t like. I agree James Maxwell.

    1. dmttbt says:

      It is not just democrats, it is both parties and they want to keep it that way. We should possibly use the terms conservative or liberal and not associate those with any particular party. Possibly crook liar or thief would be better terms. Did you notice the news that the democrats along with some republicans are blocking the wall being paid for in this years budget? Republicans vote against what Trump wants as well as what the people should get.

  • Jim Strong says:

    Schumer just another damn Demorat jackass.

  • Bob says:

    Schumer could care less about the tax returns. He could care less about tax reform. He’s a tax and spend liberal democrat who has no intentions of working with anyone on anything. His entire policy for the next 4 years is to obstruct in order not do anything, and then blame the Republicans and President Trump for getting nothing accomplished. President Trump could cure cancer, fix immigration, secure our borders, defeat ISIS, fix the economy and give healthcare to all and Schumer would still find something to stomp his feet and whine about. . He just can not get over the massive defeat of his party, the complete disavowing of his policies by the American people. After 8 years of their Messiah, loosing a majority in the House, Senate, most State Houses and Governors mansions, and now the Supreme Court must be making him crazy. Well to quote his hero, elections have consequences.

  • James Maxwell says:

    Hey Chuck U how about some of you “stars” that have not paid their taxes in
    so many years and laugh at any attempt to collect them. Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and so many other “famous” democrat socialist perhaps even your
    own would be interesting if the IRS actually investigated or audited your

  • dirkshomebiz says:

    What does Prez Trump’s tax returns have to do with tax reform? Just more diversion from the democrats party of corruption.

    1. dmttbt says:

      Exactly. I am 69 years old and for as long as I can remember the politicians have been running on tax reform and education etc. They have never gotten around to tax reform in all those years because they do not want it. The education system is a piece of crap and cost more than we can imagine.

      Schumer like most politicians don’t want Tax reforms as it would cut into pet and pork for back home . Take Non Profit status away from groups the sue the Government , that will shut many down or increase IRS income .No more Fed. grants to the same groups.

  • itsfun says:

    Schumer is the one make all changes and reforms harder if not impossible. He is becoming a one man party of obstruction and no as the Democrats just fall in line for him.
