FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Sunday, September 27, 2020
In response to The New York Times story exposing some of Donald Trump’s financial records and his years of tax avoidance, Stand Up America spokesperson Ryan Thomas issued the following the statement:
“Four years ago, Donald Trump broke decades of precedent when he refused to release his tax returns to the public. At each turn since, he’s attempted to shield his financial records from the public—even as congressional and criminal investigators look into how he’s profited off the presidency and his decades of fraudulent tax schemes.
“We’ve demanded Trump’s tax returns for years because the American people deserve to know what he’s paying—and the answer appears to be very little. A man who uses dubious tax schemes to avoid paying taxes or lies to the public about his finances has no place in the Oval Office.
“This is just one more reason why we must vote to evict him.”
