    Read a meme the other day about Democrats seeking Trump’s tax returns. It asked, wouldn’t it be better to look at a politician who became a millionaire after getting into office, then a millionaire who became a politician?

    Other politicians are required to make financial disclosures that Trump has refused to do. Why do you think that is?

    Other politicians also weren't trying to make a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars to build a hotel in a foreign country subject to economic sanctions.

    If their was something wrong with his taxes wouldn't the IRS be doing something about it?
    After all this media talk about his taxes I'm sure the IRS has looked into it.

    lets stop this lie right now...no politician has been "required" to do anything regarding taxes.

    If they are required to make disclosures good that is a start, but not what I asked.

    ... not what you asked.
    You didn't ask anything.
    You posted a rhetorical question from an unknown source.

    Is there anything wrong with becoming a millionaire after a Presidency?
    The book deals, the consultancies, the speaking circuit.
    All very lucrative and all above board.

    1. Trump promised he would.

    2. All recent Presidents have.

    I don't think there is a question of his taxes being wrong.

    I suggest you look at the end of the first line in the OP there was a question there. Rhetorical question is a question. Why ask for Trump's taxes when there are many who have gotten very rich while in office? If we are going to find something interesting if that is the desire, shouldn't we look for the corruption already in place, find those who are enriching themselves and others near them for decades give or take?

    Obama made about $30 million for being President

    Who will look into those taxes I wonder?
