GOP Presidential front runner Donald Trump says the IRS may be auditing him because of his Christianity.

According to The Hill:

Donald Trump suggested that the Internal Revenue Service may be auditing him because he is a “strong Christian.”

In an interview with CNN immediately after Thursday’s debate, the presidential hopeful complained about repeated audits to his business and said his religion might have played a role.

“I’m always audited by the IRS, which I think is very unfair. Maybe because of religion, maybe because of something else, maybe because I am doing this, but this is just recently,” Trump said, at the end referring to his presidential bid.

When CNN’s Chris Cuomo questioned the comment about religion, the real estate tycoon said: “Maybe because of the fact that I am a strong Christian … you see what’s happened, you have many religious groups complaining about that.”

That’s a reference to accusations that the IRS under President Obama audited a number of conservative groups to look into those group’s tax-exempt status.”

  1. It’s just about trying to discredit him. This corrupt government wants killary in office. They will try every dirty trick in the book to get her in. Without her they won’t be able to finish the power grab. At this point in time I don’t care of trump owes taxes. I’ll still vote Trump!

    • He said he had been audited regularly for many years. Are you saying that going back many years…the IRS was working with Hillary to discredit Trump? Does that make any sense?

      • It is not at all unusual for large corporations to be audited frequently. My question is whether the audits are for his personal taxes or the corporation.

        Regardless, anyone with his kind of wealth will always attract the attantion of the IRS.

        • Yes, it’s not unusual but to say he’s being targeted because of his strong Christian faith ( which many belive he doesn’t have btw) is proprostrous.

    • AbleAmerican 1; Sounds more like the Obama administration rather than a man who has yet to become president. According to post election surveys, the Trump lemmings you speak of come form every educational level, socio-economic group and of course … veterans.
      As Korean Veteran you fought against communism and undoubtedly you know socialism and communism are very close cousins. That is the future that concerns me, for my children, grandchildren and all United Stares citizens. Thank for for your service in what is called by some, The Forgotten War. Best regards,

  3. I am a Christian. But I’m wondering how anyone can be a Christian without asking for forgiveness?? Asking for forgiveness is required before you can become a Christian. If you haven’t ask for forgiveness then you can’t be a Christian. It is impossible.
    The Bible’s teaching is very clear on this. SO Christians why are you not standing up to this truth? Why would you vote for anyone who proclaims he has never ask for forgiveness? We all know this first step to becoming a Chriistian is asking for forgiveness?
    Keep in mind Jesus clearly says if you are ashame of me then I will be ashamed of you before my Father In Heaven. That’s means us each of us!!!
    We better be careful what we do.

  4. Because of his strong faith? Perhaps it’s because of his pride, arrogance, and tendancy to tell people off in a rude manner.
