Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in the world, has went on the offensive against Donald Trump on Monday. The billionaire investor campaigned alongside Hillary Clinton at a rally in his hometown of Nebraska, challenging Trump to release his tax returns.
Trump has stated that he cannot release his tax returns because they’re under audit, but Buffett states, “I’m under audit, too, and I would be delighted to meet him anyplace, anytime, before the election.” Buffett continued, “I’ll bring my tax return; he can bring his tax return.”
The investor stated Trump is afraid of voters, not of the IRS.
Trump’s campaign responded, “As you know, Mr. Trump is undergoing a routine audit.”
Buffett questioned Trump’s business skills, citing the first time the Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts were listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1995.
“His company lost money every year for the next decade,” stated Buffett. “If a monkey had thrown a dart at the stock page, the monkey would have made 150 percent,” continued Buffett.
Speaking in front of a crowd of 3,100 people, Buffett stated that the final straw for Trump was an attack on a decorated soldier who died 12 years ago in Iraq. Trump attacked the soldier’s family over the weekend after Khizr Khan, the soldier’s father, spoke out against Trump at the Democratic National Convention.
