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.”
