'He's hiding something': NYT reporter says it looks like there's something bad in Trump's taxes

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said on Tuesday that there's no way to avoid concluding that President Donald Trump is hiding something by refusing to release his taxes.


During an appearance on CNN, Haberman was asked by host Alisyn Camerota to speculate on why Trump has continuously refused to release his taxes despite making multiple promises that he would do so.

"I don't want to say [he's] hiding something," Camerota said. "But there have been different speculations that his taxes would show that he's not as wealthy as he thinks."

"By definition he's hiding something," Haberman replied. "He has not produced tax returns like any other presidential candidate did for 40 years -- including Mitt Romney, who fought it tooth and nail!"

However, Haberman said she had no special insight into why Trump is being so stubborn on this issue.

"I don't know why he is not releasing them," she said. "I also don't know why he won't provide proof that he's under audit. I thought that Mick Mulvaney actually said the quiet part out loud over the weekend when he said, 'The Democrats are never going to get these'... I have heard theories over time about why Donald Trump will never release his taxes. I do think it is something that they've decided that voters don't care."
