Omaha, NE - U.S. investor Warren Buffett, speaking at a campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, challenged Republican Donald Trump on Monday to release his tax returns.

Trump has said he would not release his returns until the Internal Revenue Service has completed an audit.

“Now I’ve got news for him, I’m under audit too and I would be delighted to meet him anyplace, anytime, before the election,” said Buffett, the chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffet has nothing to hide.

Trump does.

And Trump will also be embarrassed at how poor he is compared to Buffett. Trump is a loser!

Trump should release his tax returns .........Only after Obama releases his birth certificate and sealed college papers and papers.

How could Trump possibly be Commander in Chief when he has no idea about foreign policy and he mocks American prisoners of war as 'losers'? In real warfare there are prisoners taken. Would he mock them, turn his back on them, insult them, sell them out? These are real concerns many Americans have, considering that most secular Jewish families have men who served in the military since immigrating here. Frum folks don't serve here or in Israel, just like Trump did not serve.

Buffet pays himself a salary just above $100,000 to max out social security.

He sells nothing so he doesn't pay capital gains taxes.

He only has dividend income from Berkshire Hathaway so he pays the same low tax rates as hedge funds do.

He games the system to pay the least amount of taxes. He is leaving his stock to the Gates Foundation so there won't be any estate takes on his $50 B of holdings. His empire can stay intact for posterity.

The Washington Post will never say anything. He owns a big part.

He supports Obama, so he has protection from the left.

Not a bad guy at all, but needs some self examination before he sits in judgment of other people.

He already released his birth certificate.

No candidate had released their college transcripts. Perhaps you would request his health info and SS# too?

You have no clue, prisoners are only taken cause Washington doesn't know what's doing. He will win wars so huge and fin, you're head will spin.

It boils down to this, you can vote for someone who has zero political experience but is successful despite what you might think about his tax returns (you don't live a life style like trump from making $500k a yr) or you can vote for a lair who is one of the most corupt crooked politicians in the world but has lot of experience?

So you are attacking him because he is giving everything to charity? Strange view of things. Let the he should leave money to yeshivas begin.

Hiliary has bad failed ideas about foreighn policy. Just look at Syria and Lybia and Iraq. At minimum Trump will get smart advisers. And at least he didn't fail. Hilray has an idea about foregin policy thats true. But its all very bad ideas. And if you cared so much about our troops don't vote for a hawk like Hiliary who approves every invasion and war out there.
