Keeping the tax returns under wraps also makes it hard to prove Trump's claim that he's given millions to charity, "I'm a good person, i give money to charity, a lot of money to charity". If elected, Trump would be the nation's oldest first-term president. With the candidates' health becoming a central focus of the race this week, Trump made an appearance on a taping of The Dr.

Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, stuck to a similar line in an interview with ABC's Martha Raddatz on "This Week". "I've never been under audit, so I don't know what advice I would get from my lawyers and my accountants if I was", Christie said.
Duterte himself has previously conceded as much. Matobato is the first person to admit any role in such killings, and to directly implicate Duterte under oath in a public hearing. But he said their targets were not only criminals but also opponents of Mr Duterte and one of his sons, Paolo Duterte, who is now the vice mayor of Davao .

Yeah. Take their guns away . "Clinton's campaign relies on the exhausted tactic of smearing opponents who question her policies as racists", Trump said at an election rally in Miami , Florida.

I must give a huge compliment to the team for the fight that we had up to the last minute. The 36-year-old enjoyed six years at north-west rivals Liverpool and netted a hat-trick in a 3-1 defeat of United in March 2011.

The Vikings' defense is loaded with talent all over the field. The Packers didn't look all too impressive against the Jaguars in their first game of the season, but they were able to escape Jacksonville with a 27-23 win.
