Trump had refrained from releasing his tax returns amid fears he'd be mocked by the right for paying too much.
Analysts who examined the tax returns that were obtained by TheYellowDailyNews agreed that Trump paid a great deal more in taxes than most of the U.S. elite, and was therefore unfit to be the nation's leader. "What a putz. He's a billionaire and paid that massive amount of taxes," billionaire Steve Forbestein quipped in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "How can he be expected to lead the free world when he cannot even manipulate a balance sheet?"
Despite calls for the Republican to abandon his presidential bid, Trump held steady and said he would challenge the "outrageous" amount of taxes taken from him—all the way to the US Supreme Court if necessary.

"This is outrageous and shocks the conscience that I paid that inordinate amount of taxes to the Barack Obama administration, which is going to waste my hard earned money on healthcare for the poor," Trump said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "Nobody in their right mind believes that this is fair, and you can bet the Supreme Court won't think so, either."
The 2016 Republican National Convention is to be held July 18-21 in Cleveland, Ohio. The GOP faithful are expected to protest against the presumptive nominee by labeling him a tax "overpayor."
Monica Lewinsky, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton, the presumptive presidential nominee for the Democrats, said Trump should end his campaign immediately. "This should leave a bad taste in voters' mouths," Lewinsky told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview.
