Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Wednesday said that President Trump has “no intention” of releasing his tax returns.

When asked during a press conference if Trump will release his tax returns, Mnuchin replied that Trump already released “plenty of information” about his taxes.
{mosads}”The president has no intention — the president has released plenty of information and I think has given more financial disclosure than anybody else,” Mnuchin said. “I think the American population has plenty of information.”
Trump has long declined to release his tax returns, breaking decades-old precedent for presidential candidates.
Trump has said that he can’t release his taxes while they’re under audit by the IRS. But the IRS has said that an audit doesn’t prevent an individual from making his or her tax returns public.
Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly tried to obtain Trump’s taxes through various methods in the House but have seen their efforts blocked by Republicans.
