Donald Trump is leaving the door open to not releasing his tax returns, just hours after Mitt Romney warned Wednesday that the billionaire’s tax documents could contain a “bombshell.”
The GOP front-runner said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he will “make a determination over the next couple of months” as to whether he will release his tax returns.
Trump rejected Romney’s accusation out of hand, saying “there is no bombshell at all other than I pay a lot of tax and the government wastes the money.”
And Trump also slammed Romney, whom the real estate mogul endorsed in the 2012 GOP presidential nominating contest, as “yesterday’s news.”
Romney’s biting attack hinted at clear signs of alarm in the Republican establishment at the billionaire’s tightening grip on the party’s presidential race.
