Donald Trump’s finances should be aired for the country to see, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday.

The establishment Republican didn’t demand the presumptive Republican presidential nominee release his tax returns, but agreed that it was puzzling Trump has been to resistent to the long-standing practice.

“Most candidates for president have, and that’s been the tradition,” McConnell. “He’ll have to make that decision himself, but that’s certainly been the pattern for quite some time.”

Trump, who has been publicly and repeatedly pressed to release his financial information, has waffled on whether or not he’ll make his tax returns public. He told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “it’s none of your business” what his tax rate is.
