Seth Meyers: Trump won’t release his tax returns because he’s broke
On Friday night Seth Meyers offered his theory as to why Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump won’t release his tax returns.
Clinton donors, the Late Show host said, have put out a bounty on the former reality TV star’s tax returns, which the Trump campaign announced this week it will not be disclosing.
Some critics like columnist George Will have suggested that Trump won’t release the financial records because they would reveal extensive ties to Russian oligarchs.
Meyers, however, has another theory.
“Trump,” he said to the camera, “I think you’re not releasing your taxes because you don’t have any money. I think you’re broke. I don’t even think you have an accountant. I think you use TurboTax.”
“You’re not running for president because you want the power or you want to make America great, I think you need the $400,000 a year salary,” said Meyers.
