In an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Mitt Romney was pressed on his stated refusal to release his tax returns. Romney said if he becomes president he’ll “consider that.”
Mitchell: But, if you were president, it's not that hard to make a commitment that if you're elected President of the United States, that you would release the tax returns, every president does.
Romney: You know, if I become president, then I'll consider that. It's a little premature for me to be talking about that at this stage.
Mitchell: Is there some secret? People know you're wealthy.
Romney: Yeah, I understand.
Mitchell: There's nothing to hide?
Romney: No, I agree. (Pause) There's nothing to hide.
