With the Khan family off the front page for an hour, Hillary Clinton's billionaire buddy Warren Buffett is piling on, taking a job at Donald Trump's businesses and demanding a tax-return-showdown... Will Trump react?
Donald Trump shrugged off criticism from Warren Buffett on Tuesday, a day after the billionaire philanthropist challenged the Republican presidential nominee to release his taxes. As Politico reports,
“I don’t care much about Warren Buffett,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company” in a telephone interview.
“There’s no counterpunch. You know, I’m not listening to what—” Trump began. “Look, Warren Buffett has been a fan of — he’s a Democrat. He’s been a Hillary fan for a long time, and I think that’s fine. Hillary’s a disaster.”
At a campaign stop with Hillary Clinton in Omaha, Nebraska, on Monday, Buffett told supporters they would “learn a whole lot more about Donald Trump if he produces his income tax return.” Trump has said he won’t release his tax returns while he’s under audit. Buffett said he was also under audit but “would be delighted to meet him any time, any place before the election.”
“I'll bring my tax return. He can bring his tax return. Nobody is going to arrest us. There are no rules against showing your tax returns and just letting people ask questions about the items that are on there,” Buffett said. “You’re only afraid if you got something to be afraid about. He's not afraid of the IRS. He's afraid because of you.”
