AOC reminds Trump in tweet about tax return request: ‘We didn’t ask you’

In a tweet Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., suggested that House Democrats won’t be taking no for an answer in seeking access to President Trump’s tax returns.

The freshman congresswoman boiled her view of the situation down to the following mock conversation between Congress and the president:

“Congress: ‘We’re going to need a copy of the President’s tax returns from 2013-2018.’

“45: ‘No, I’m ‘under audit.’

“Congress: ‘We didn’t ask you.’ ”

After Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, some Democrats have been continuing efforts to investigate the president’s business dealings and other actions.

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet referred to the House Ways and Means Committee’s request to the IRS for six years of the president’s tax records.
