Real estate billionaire Donald Trump says the furor surrounding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s tax returns is nothing more than a tempest in a tea pot.

While the Obama campaign and other Democrats have been haranguing Romney to provide more of his tax information, the public doesn’t really care, Trump told Fox News Monday. Romney already released his tax returns for 2010-11.

"I really believe the whole clamor for Mitt Romney's tax returns has died down," Trump said, according to The Hill. "People are getting tired of it.”

Americans are more concerned over what information President Barack Obama hasn’t revealed, he said. “They're looking at the things our president has not released, and I think frankly that's starting to come to the floor. I think they're saying, 'Wait a minute, we'd better not keep pushing this tax return stuff, because then the president's going to have to release things he doesn't want to release,' and I think that'll be devastating to him."

Trump didn’t say exactly what information the president might be hiding. Trump has periodically questioned Obama over his college transcripts, which have never been released, and the legitimacy of his birth certificate.

Trump also took a dig at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who said last week that she won’t reveal her tax returns because she isn’t running for president. "She's always been known as a dealmaker, and it would be interesting to see what those returns say," Trump said.
