Donald Trump’s son said Wednesday that it would be “foolish” for his father to release his tax returns.
Eric Trump echoed his father during an appearance on CNBC, saying that the Republican presidential candidate can’t release his tax returns until the Internal Revenue Service finishes an audit, the Wall Street Journal reports.
“You would have a bunch of people who know nothing about taxes trying to look through and trying to come up with assumptions on things they know nothing about,” Trump said. “It would be foolish to do. I’m actually the biggest proponent of not doing it.”
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton released her tax returns in early August, along with her running mate Tim Kaine.
Mike Pence, Trump’s running mate, released a financial disclosure report last week and said that he intends to release his tax returns, according to the Journal.
Eric Trump, however, believes that Trump’s tax returns won’t show much. “You don’t learn that much from a tax return, in all fairness,” he told CNBC.
