Mitch McConnell Is Surprised Donald Trump Hasn't Released Taxes: 'That's Tradition'

Trump even has Mitch McConnell perplexed.

Donald Trump has been adamant about not releasing his tax returns, which has the media and many Americans wondering what he has to hide.

On Tuesday, Sen. Mitch McConnell was asked if Donald Trump should release his tax returns:

“Most candidates for president have, and that’s been the tradition,” McConnell told reporters on Capitol Hill, though he stopped short of making any demands on his party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

“He’ll have to make that decision himself, but that’s certainly been the pattern for quite some time,” McConnell said.

Do you mean that the Senate Majority leader isn't buying Trump's line of bull about being audited either?
