‘Not fair’: Trump rages over Supreme Court decisions involving his financial records

The tweets came after the Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 decision — in which the majority was joined by Trump-appointed Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — that the president is not immune from the Manhattan District Attorney’s efforts to obtain his taxes as part of an investigation into hush payments to two women. In another 7-2 decision, the court also left open the potential for House Democrats to obtain his financial records from the Trump Organization’s accounting firm and two banks.

Trump waged a coast-to-coast legal battle to keep his tax information private in the months leading up to Thursday’s Supreme Court rulings. While presidential candidates have traditionally released his or her tax returns over the past few decades, it is not required by law, and though he said he would make public the information during his 2016 run, Trump ultimately became the first major-party nominee in four decades to not do so.
