Buffett: Trump is afraid to release tax returns

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Warren Buffett is suggesting that fellow billionaire Donald Trump is afraid to release his tax returns.

At an event with Hillary Clinton in Omaha, Nebraska, Buffett criticized Trump for breaking with decades of presidential campaign tradition by keeping secret documents that can reveal much about a candidate's charitable giving, assets and spending priorities. Trump says he'll release the returns after the IRS is finished auditing him.

But Buffett suggested the real reason is fear, saying, "You're only afraid if you have something to be afraid of." He added that he would be "delighted" to meet Trump between now and the election.

Buffett says, "I'll bring my tax return, he'll bring his tax return...and just let people ask us questions."

Clinton has released eight years of recent tax filings.
