WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he “would not be inclined” to provide his tax returns in response to a request from a House committee chairman.

Rep. Richard Neal, the Democratic chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, on Wednesday formally requested six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns from the IRS.

Trump was asked about the request during a White House meeting with military leaders.

“Is that all?” he said when he heard it was for six years of returns. “Usually it’s 10, so I guess they’re giving up.”

Trump says: “We’re under audit despite what people said. We’re working that out.”

The president says he’s been under audit for many years “because the numbers are big and I guess when you have a name, you’re audited.”
