President Donald Trump has “no intention” of releasing his tax returns, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday, in one of the most definitive statements coming from the administration about an issue that has shadowed Trump since the campaign.
While briefing reporters about the president’s tax proposal, Mnuchin was asked if Trump would disclose his tax returns.

Mnuchin added that, “I think the American population has plenty of information.” Later, when asked if Trump would benefit from the proposed tax-code changes, Mnuchin said: “I can’t comment on the president’s tax situation since I don’t have access to that.”
