U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton released tax records showing she paid a federal tax rate of 34.2 percent last year, while Republican candidate Donald Trump is undergoing increasing pressure to make his own financial disclosure.
Clinton and her running mate, vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, released their tax returns Friday. Kaine paid a federal tax rate of 20.3 percent in 2015.
Campaign aide Jennifer Palmieri said in a statement that Clinton and Kaine “continue to set the standard for financial transparency,” and called on Trump to release his own tax records, as every major presidential candidate has done for the past four decades.
