Stephanopoulos to Mnuchin: Can You Guarantee Trump Won’t Get a Tax Cut Under His Tax Plan?
STEPHANOPOULOS: "Well, but based on last year’s form, he would have gotten that benefit.

I wouldn’t need to make the assumptions if we had the president’s tax returns. And I guess that’s the question. The president himself has said publicly he’s not going to get a benefit from this tax plan. My question to you is, how are the American people going to know that if he’s not, releasing his tax returns? ... You talked about transparency, but in the interests of transparency, can you guarantee that the president won’t get a tax cut under his plan? And how will you demonstrate it?"
