Selin ATAY-TDO- President Trump blasted investigators seeking his financial records and said he would release them voluntarily ahead of the 2020 election, although he made a similar pledge in 2016.
Donald Trump made the remarks on his personal Twitter account about his "financial records," which Democrats have long pressed.
“Bob Mueller, after spending two years and 45 million dollars, went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done,” Trump tweeted, referencing an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.
“What they are doing is not legal. But I’m clean, and when I release my financial statement (my decision) sometime prior to Election, it will only show one thing - that I am much richer than people even thought,” Trump added.
The debate over Donald Trump's financial records had begun during President Trump's election campaign in 2016, when he was the target of criticism over his refusal to release his tax returns.
Allegations raised by the New York Times in October 2018 that "Trump has evaded millions of dollars in taxes" had also long preoccupied the US agenda.
