Romney Speculates Why Trump is Hiding his Tax Returns; Trump Goes on the Attack

One year ago, when Donald Trump appeared on the Hugh Hewitt Show, promised to release his tax returns. To this date, The Donald still has not done so.

Enter former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

There has been speculation that Romney would endorse Florida Senator and new GOP establishment darling, Marco Rubio. While Rubio has denied such claims, perhaps the GOPe is now trying to use Romney is another capacity.

Appearing on FOX News with Neil Cavuto on Wednesday, Romney hit Trump for the failure to release his taxes, saying that perhaps the reason is because there’s a bombshell that Trump doesn’t want us to see.

In discussing Trump’s taxes, Romney said, “We have good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes.” Not surprisingly, Cavuto pressed Romney to explain his statement.

“Well, I think there’s something there. Either he’s not anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is, or he hasn’t been paying the kind of taxes we would expect him to pay. Or perhaps he hasn’t been giving money to the vets or the disabled, like he’s been telling us he’s been doing.”

But, he didn’t stop there.

Romney added, “The reason I think there’s a bombshell in there is that every time he’s asked about his taxes, he dodges or delays and says, ‘Well, we’re working on it.”

Not shockingly, Trump soon took to Twitter to not defend his failure to supply his tax return, but instead used it as an opportunity to go on the attack against Romney, calling him a fool and, in typical Trump fashion, attacking him personally. You know, in true presidential fashion. (j/k)

So, back to Trump saying one year ago that he would provide his taxes, then failing to do so. (Then again, Trump does seem to have an awful problem with the truth.) Here is a reminder in case he forgot or wants to deny he ever made such a promise.

Does anyone else have a problem with the fact that Trump is as secretive about this as Obama was about his past? If you don’t, then you’re a hypocrite and part of the problem.
