Donald Trump rejects Mitt Romney's ironic tax attack
CNN ^ | February 24, 2016 | Stephen Collinson, Jeremy Diamond and Hasan Khan

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...

It was also an attack steeped in irony, since Romney was on the receiving end of similar claims by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, when Democrats eviscerated him over his fortune and business record during the 2012 campaign. Reid zeroed in on his taxes, saying he hadn't paid any in a decade without offering any evidence to support the claim...

Mitt is pissed because he was going to run again until Jeb Bush went to him & told him he had secured commitments from most of Romney’s major donors. Now that Jeb’s campaign has folded, Mitt is regretting that he dropped out, so he’s playing the Harry Reid game.

I just heard Trump say on the news that he gets audited by the IRS every year.

It’s highly unlikely that Romney knows more about Trump’s taxs than the IRS does.

“Mittens” is just jealous because he’s such a LOSER!!!

First of all Romney, your a loser, and didn’t have your ‘flashlight’ out in the ‘grove of trees’ to find your ‘golden tax return’ so how would you know what a tax return is?

Shut your mouth ‘Moroni Mitt’ and go to hell!!!

Is this the next volley from the “Destroy Trump” GOP?

What ever the catalyst it destroys what small amount of standing Mitt might have still had among honest people.

It is disappointing to say the least.
