But when Trump was trying to convince Stephanopoulos that even though Congress wants his "fantastic financial statement" and he wants them to see it, "it's not up to me, it's up to lawyers, it's up to everything else," acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney started coughing. Trump stopped the interview. "Let's do that over, he's coughing in the middle of my answer," he said. "I don't like that, you know, I don't like that. ... If you're going to cough, please leave the room. You just can't, you just can't cough. Boy, oh boy."
Pres. Trump says he “might” turn over his “financial statement” to Congress.
Trump isn't wrong about coughing in the middle of your boss' on-camera interview, but the idea that Trump believes he can do just about anything — including firing the prosecutor investigating him — but not release his own tax returns or financial statements, that's pretty hard to swallow.
