I think the public has a right to know the background of someone whom is campaigning to become president of our country. In my opinion, if he doesn't release his records his is hiding something that he doesn't want us to know about. I think elected officials should be open books and everyone be able to know about their backgrounds.
Yes, Donald Trump should release his own records so that the American public can trust him more. even though most politiocians are slightly distrusted, Donald Trump does not have a voting record in Congress or as a governor by which people can evaluate him and his policy stances. They at least need to see his records.
As long as Trump continues to call for the other canidates to release their taxes and other records, he should do so, especially since all the other canidates have done so. Even Obama, who had no real reason to do so released his birth cirtificate when he was asked to.
Trump should release his own records in the interest of transparency. As a political candidate for one of the most powerful positions in the world, it is imperative that voters know what sort of person he is and has been so they can determine if they want to cast their votes for him. If he has nothing to hide, it would allow him to demonstrate that voters can trust him, and if he does have something to hide, it might dissuade people from voting for him.
