Breaking: They’ve Just Banned Trump From the 2020 Ballot

By

A Rhode Island Bill could reportedly keep President Trump off of the 2020 Ballot if he doesn’t release 5 years of his tax returns.

As reported by thehill.com

Rhode Island’s state Senate passed a bill this week that would keep candidates off the presidential ballot in their state if they don’t release five years’ worth of tax returns, according to the Providence Journal.

Sen. Gayle Goldin (D), who sponsored the bill, noted that every presidential candidate since Richard Nixon released their tax returns voluntarily until President Trump ran for office.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that he cannot release his tax returns because he is under audit, but the IRS said an audit does not prevent a candidate from releasing their personal tax information.

Goldin argued that “tax returns provide essential information about candidates’ conflicts of interest.”

The bill passed the Democratic-led majority Senate on a 34-3 vote. It now moves to the Rhode Island state House
