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.
