WASH­ING­TON Show us your tax returns, Trump told

The Myanmar Times - - World -

UNITED States bil­lion­aire Warren Buf­fett chal­lenged Don­ald Trump to re­lease his tax returns, some­thing which the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date has so far re­sisted.

Mr Trump has said he won’t re­lease the doc­u­ments be­cause he is un­der au­dit, which Mr Buf­fett – one of the world’s rich­est men – sug­gested is a weak ex­cuse.

“Now I’ve got news for him – I’m un­der au­dit, too,” Mr Buf­fett said, speak­ing at a Hil­lary Clin­ton rally in Ne­braska. “You’re only afraid if you got some­thing to be afraid about.

“He’s afraid be­cause of you,” Mr Buf­fett told the at­ten­dees.

Mr Buf­fett sug­gested he and Mr Trump meet “any place, any time” be­fore elec­tion day to pub­licly go over their tax records to­gether.

The busi­ness mag­nate also sharply crit­i­cised Mr Trump for a re­cent dis­pute with the par­ents of a fallen Mus­lim Amer­i­can sol­dier.

Pak­istani im­mi­grant Khizr Khan gal­vanised the Demo­cratic Na­tional Con­ven­tion with a tribute to his dead son in which he re­buked the Repub­li­can nom­i­nee for hav­ing “sac­ri­ficed noth­ing” for the coun­try.

In an in­ter­view aired on ABC on July 31, Mr Trump in­sisted he had made “a lot of sac­ri­fices” for the US.

Mr Buf­fett de­clared oth­er­wise: “Don­ald Trump and I haven’t sac­ri­ficed any­thing,” he said.

“How in the world can you stand up to a cou­ple of par­ents who have lost a son and talk about sac­ri­fic­ing be­cause you were build­ing a bunch of build­ings?” –
