"I am happy to give him the facts."
Warren Buffett wants to set the record straight with Donald Trump about his taxes.
During Sunday night’s presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump invoked the billionaire CEO of Berkshire Hathaway brk.a while defending his own $916 million loss in 1995 to avoid paying federal income tax. The Republican candidate claimed Buffett and other businessmen used similar tactics.
But in a statement Monday, Clinton supporter Buffett said Trump “has not seen my tax returns,” and he then proceeded to outline his 2015 taxes in detail.
Unlike most recent presidential nominees, Trump has refused to release his tax returns, claiming he is under audit, which prevents him from disclosing the information. Buffett has called upon Trump in the past to release them, and in Monday’s statement, he said, “I have no problem in releasing my tax information while under audit. Neither would Mr. Trump—at least he would have no legal problem.”
