In response to reports that Air Force flight crews have been stopping off in Scotland* to use Trump’s resort for rest at the taxpayers expense ?
He out with the above…
When we see it?
We’ll believe it….
The guy’s a liar….
An he hasn’t shown much of his financials to anybody…..
President Donald Trump on Monday claimed he plans on releasing an “extremely complete” report of his financial record, but he offered no specifics and a murky timeline.
Speaking to reporters as he departed the White House, Trump suggested that the promised release would dispel the notion that his real estate empire is in need of the taxpayer money and business driven there throughout his presidency.
The latest such controversy arose from a POLITICO report that detailed several instances of U.S. Air Force crews staying at Trump’s Scotland resort while refueling at a small commercial airport nearby. But Trump argued that it was unfair to suggest he was to blame for a military aircraft refueling in the vicinity of one of his properties.
“I own a lot of different places,” he told reporters. “Soon, you will find that out because I will be, at some point prior to the election, I will be giving out a financial report of me. And it will be extremely complete. I’m going to give out my financial condition.”
Trump’s finances have been a major issue of contention, stemming from his refusal to release his tax returns while running for president, breaking a decades-long tradition for major party nominees.
Democrats in the House are now embroiled in a legal battle with the White House as well as top banks with whom he’s conducted business in an attempt to compel their release — but it’s unlikely the issue will be resolved ahead of next year’s elections.
Trump has pledged in the past to release information about his personal finances but initially maintained that ongoing audits of his tax returns by the IRS precluded him from doing so. But he became unyielding as his White House has stonewalled oversight investigators demanding information about his finances and sued banks to block subpoenas issued by Democrats.
As president, Trump is required to submit annual financial disclosures. It is unclear whether he was referring to these less revealing documents on Monday; his latest disclosures were released in May…
*President Donald Trump on Monday denied any involvement in a shift in military practice that has allowed Air Force crews to overnight at his luxury Turnberry golf resort in Scotland.
“I know nothing about an Air Force plane landing at an airport (which I do not own and have nothing to do with) near Turnberry Resort (which I do own) in Scotland, and filling up with fuel, with the crew staying overnight at Turnberry (they have good taste!),” Trump said in a tweet, claiming that the decision for crews to overnight at the luxury seaside resort has “NOTHING TO DO WITH ME.”
The U.S. Air Force on Sunday ordered a worldwide review of how the branch chooses overnight accommodations for its crews following a POLITICO report revealing that the House Oversight Committee was investigating an uptick in unusual stops there — stops that included overnight stays at Trump Turnberry by Air Force crews in the past four years….
