The new president can accept the resignation or keep them. Trump accepted his resignation. Maybe Trump wasn't aware that the resignation is only customary and doesn't have to be accept it?

Trump also isn't aware that a current tax audit doesn't prohibit one from making one's taxes public. Warren Buffett and other billionaires have been know to release their taxes during audits.

Especially since the IRS has gone on record and told him he could do it.

The audit isn't over? I thought they concluded it a bit ago.

If I didn't have anything to hide I'd publish my tax returns so fast it'd make your head spin. Now there is an outside possibility there's nothing amiss with the taxes but it could also be that his team needs the time to cook the books and make some changes. Snark...Tongue

The other day he said nobody cared about his taxes.

I don't think people actually do care as much as they say. It's not like we're all trying to make up our minds about him but can't until the taxes are out. Those who like him will still like him and those who think he's a douche still will. He therefore has absolutely nothing to gain regardless of what his taxes show.

RE: Inauguration Countdown
This may sound just a bit woo-woo, but I'm actually expecting incredibly nasty weather to hit Washington next Friday. Other than the recent ice storms in the Midwest I have no logical reason for believing this, so take this with a grain of salt.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

Maybe we should all pray to Odin for an ice storm to hit Washington. Odin promised to kill all the Ice Giants so maybe He also creates ice storms. Praise Odin...Oh, Great Ice Giant Killer. Bowing



sorry, off topic. Unsure

I think it is now but when the issue of the tax forms came up, Trump said that because of the audit, he couldn't do it. The IRS said that it was fine if he released them. He promptly ignored the statement.

I believe he said his lawyer advised him not to do it while under audit.

Who cares anyway? There is no law requiring a presidential candidate release tax returns. Nixon didn't (until he was already in office, but not as a candidate). Gerald Ford didn't either.

It's just another thing for people to whine about. I actually love that it bothers people so much. I hope republicans go back to never releasing tax returns just to piss liberals off.
