Trump In 2011: I’ll Release My Tax Returns When Obama Releases His Birth Certificate

“I think I may tie mine into his birth certificate,” Trump continued. “But I’ve built a great company. It’s a strong company. It’s an under-levered company. I’ve got a lot of cash and a tremendous net worth, far greater than even numbers that you’ve read. And if I decide to run.”


A week after his 2011 comments, President Obama released his birth certificate. ABC News later caught up with Trump, who said he’d release them at “the appropriate time.”


“Maybe I’m going to do the tax returns when Obama does his birth certificate,” Trump said in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos “I may tie my tax returns, I’d love to give my tax returns, I may tie my tax returns into Obama’s birth certificate.”
