`None of your business': Trump refuses to reveal tax rate, stalls on returns
Asked if he believes Americans deserve to see his returns before they vote, Trump said no.

"I don't think they do, but I do say this: I will really gladly give them. They're not going to learn anything, but it's under routine audit," Trump said, adding that there's no bombshell waiting inside. "You learn very little from tax returns."

Stephanopoulos disputed that statement, saying people can learn quite a bit. He pointed to possible sources of income - including foreign ones - and offshore accounts.

"I'll tell you right now: I do not. I don't have Swiss bank accounts, I don't have offshore, I really have a very, very clean company," Trump replied.

Notably, Trump's name appeared 3,540 times in the Panama Papers, a trove of leaks that detail how many wealthy individuals and companies hide assets overseas, according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. Since Trump routinely licenses his name out to investors, the listing of his name doesn't necessarily mean he is involved in an offshore account.
