2012 Trump on Whether He Would Release Tax Returns: ‘I Think It’s a Great Thing’
When asked whether he would be willing to release his tax returns if he ran for president in 2012, Donald Trump said he didn’t have a problem with it.
“When you see some of the analysis on Mitt Romney’s tax record, would that be a repellent for you, for Donald Trump to reveal everything?” Fox & Friends‘ Brian Kilmeade asked.

“No, I actually think that it’s a great thing when you can show that you’ve been successful and that you’ve made a lot of money and you’ve employed a lot of people,” Trump said.
“I actually think it’s a positive… I really think it’s a positive,” he said.
The remarks are relevant today after Mitt Romney called on Trump to release his tax returns, speculating that there may be a “bombshell” voters should know about. Trump told Hugh Hewitt two days ago that he would release his tax returns “at some point.”
