Trump says he will release ‘financial statement’ before 2020 election: tweet


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump, facing lawsuits and political demands to release his U.S. tax returns and other financial information, said on Thursday he will release a statement on his finances before the presidential election, and asserted that it was his call on providing the information.

“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 – And that is a good thing,” Trump said, providing no details on his claims of wealth.
