"I'd be delighted to meet him any place, any time between now and election," Buffett said. "And let people ask us questions about the items on there."

Trump has received scrutiny from both Democrats and Republicans for refusing to release his tax returns, something that candidates have historically done while running for president.

Clinton has released more than 30 years of her returns.

"How many of you are afraid to make tax returns public?" Buffett asked. "You’re only afraid if you have something to be afraid about."

"He’s not afraid because of ... the IRS," he added. "He’s afraid of you."
