Donald Trump stays in the corner where the strikes fall. On Tuesday, a court rejected the former US president’s appeal. As a result, Trump must submit his tax returns to a committee in the US House of Representatives. The Important Ways and Means Commission said it expected the documents “immediately”.

Commission Chair Richard Neil has asked for tax returns for the past six years in 2019. This question was first met with approval by the US Treasury, but after Joe Biden became president, the department gave its approval. However, Trump resumed.

But the federal court in Washington, D.C. now states that “each president takes office knowing that when he resigns, he will be subject to the same laws as all other citizens.” For this reason, according to the court, Trump must provide the required documents. Trump can still appeal that decision.

In the United States, it is customary for presidential candidates to publish their tax returns. But Trump has always resisted that throughout his campaign and term.
