Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 5

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has not released his tax returns to the general public, and Late Night host Seth Meyers has one explanation for Trump’s refusal of basic political protocol.

“Trump, I think you’re not releasing your taxes because you don’t have any money,” Meyers said directly into the camera. “I think you’re broke. I don’t even think you have an accountant. I think you use Turbo Tax. I don’t think you’re running for president because you want the power or you want to make America great. I think you need the $400,000-a-year salary.”

Meyers’ theory also provided an explanation for possible ties between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I think you do talk to Putin, but only to say ‘I’ll get you the money, I swear, just give me until November,'” Meyers said. “Hey, maybe I’m wrong. All you have to do to prove I’m wrong is release your taxes.”
