Trump on protests demanding release of his taxes: 'The election is over'

In an interview on NBC's "Today", host Savannah Guthrie asked Warren if the issue was "over" after Trump won the presidency without releasing any of his tax returns, becoming the first president since Richard Nixon not to do so.

When asked about Trump's taxes on CNN's "Wolf", the House Republican said releasing the returns was "the right thing to do".

"If I decide to run for office, I'll produce my tax returns, absolutely", he said.

UNIDENTIFIED CROWD: (Chanting) Donald Trump has got to go.

SHEPPARD: When the people who are griping about the tax returns say, we want to know you're beholden to, they're saying they want to know who the lenders are. Protesters in Raleigh, N.C., said they suspect that Trump's returns might show he has paid little or nothing to the government he now heads, or that he was indebted to Russian, Chinese, or other foreign interests.

Protests erupted nationwide on Saturday - also known as Tax Day - calling on the President to make his tax returns public. Presidents are not required...
