Bill O’Reilly appeared on the Today Show this week and the hosts asked him about Donald Trump’s tax returns. O’Reilly correctly pointed out that this is a no win issue for Trump.
O’Reilly Tells Off NBC: The Press Wants Trump to Lose
On Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie grilled Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on whether Donald Trump should release his tax returns: “Speaking of transparency….Are you on the record as Donald Trump should turn over those tax returns?” O’Reilly pushed back: “No matter what he does, he puts his tax returns out, the press – which wants him to lose….Trump knows whatever he does in that area, he’s going to be destroyed.”
Guthrie argued: “But isn’t the principle transparency? Put them out and so be it, let the chips fall.” O’Reilly replied: “There is a principle involved, there is. But his tax returns are so complicated because of all his private holdings. If I were Trump, I wouldn’t put them out. As a journalist, I’d like to see them.”

O’Reilly is spot on with his analysis of the situation.
The media wants Trump’s tax returns because they’re looking for something they can use to attack him.
