Eric Trump: Dad Would Be ‘Foolish’ to Release Taxes [VIDEO]

According to Eric Trump, it would be “foolish” for his father Donald to release his tax returns amid the presidential race. “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,” the 32-year-old spawn of the real-estate mogul said on CNBC Wednesday. “It would be foolish to do. I’m actually the biggest proponent of not doing it.” Despite repeated calls from both sides of the aisle for Trump to release his taxes, the GOP nominee has falsely maintained that he cannot release his taxes while they are subject to an Internal Revenue Service audit. His son repeated the claim on Wednesday, telling the financial-news network: “No tax attorney in the world who will tell you to release your tax returns while you’re under a standard routine audit.”
