Senator Lankford: President Trump Should Release His Tax Returns

Posted: Updated:
BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma Senator James Lankford has added his name to a growing list of voters and lawmakers who feel President Donald Trump should release his tax returns.

In a  town hall event Tuesday in Broken Arrow, Senator Lankford told the group the President promised he would release his returns and he should keep that promise.

Our partners at The Frontier attended the town hall meeting and its editor-in-chief Dylan Goforth talked about what the Senator said at the meeting.

“To stand up in front of the President and say ‘Hey, release your tax returns you promised you would,’ is a different story so that had a calming effect on the room. I don't know how much good it will do in the long run but that's what the people there wanted to hear,” said Dylan Goforth.

Lankford's staff released the following statement:

"Senator Lankford believes the President should release his tax returns simply because Mr. Trump indicated that he would during the campaign. That's it. However, Lankford does not support legislation to compel someone, like the President, to publicly release his taxes."

Most recently the White House has said the President is still under audit, which they claim is the reason for not releasing his returns. But the IRS has also stated the audit doesn't prevent Trump from making his records public.

Senator Lankford has been holding a number of town hall gatherings across the state.  The latest is Thursday in Bartlesville at the Arvest Bank event center starting at 9:45 a.m.
