Trump On Being Audited: ‘Maybe Because Of The Fact That I’m A Strong Christian’

Donald Trump thinks he knows why his tax returns are always being audited.

In an interview Chris Cuomo on CNN after Thursday night’s primary debate, the billionaire Republican¬†presidential frontrunner suggested that the IRS might be persecuting him because he is “a strong Christian.”

“But the one problem I have is I am always audited by the IRS, which I think is very unfair,” Trump said. “I don’t know — maybe because of religion, maybe because of something else, maybe because I am doing this [running for office], though this is just recently.”

Asked to clarify what he meant when he said he might be being audited because of religion, Trump replied: “Well, maybe because of the fact I am a strong Christian and I feel strongly about it, and maybe there is a bias.”
