Democratic presidential candidate, Julián Castro, said all those running for president should be required to release their tax returns.
Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development secretary made his comments on Thursday during a CNN town hall. A video excerpt was posted on the CNN Twitter account.
“I support making it a requirement by statute -- Congress passing a law that requires people who are running for president to submit 10 years of their tax returns,” he said.
Castro, who said he would release 10 years of his tax returns in the next few weeks, blasted President Donald Trump’s refusal to release his own.
“It is astonishing that this president still has not released his taxes…” Castro said. “It’s clear that he has something to hide, I don’t.”
“If you have nothing to hide than there could be no problem”
His comments come as Democrats continued to pressure Trump to provide his tax returns.
