And I’m slamming Al Sharpton for being a race baiting, violence inciting self-serving hypocrite.Well, ain’t that the pot calling the kettle black. Pay your own taxes you before pointing the finger at someone else.
As protesters readied for mass “Tax Day” demonstrations on Saturday, Rev. Al Sharpton slammed President Donald Trump for refusing to divulge his personal financial information, which has broken a White House tradition dating back to the late President Richard Nixon.
Speaking at his weekly rally at the Harlem headquarters of his National Action Network, Sharpton noted that thousands would take to the streets in a few hours to demand the president at long last disclose his full fiscal history and provide an account of his global business dealings. During the campaign season, Trump claimed he could not release his returns because he was under audit, which the Internal Revenue Service and other observers deemed a spurious excuse.
The then-candidate promised to disclose his tax details once the review was over—a promise he rescinded upon winning the presidency.
