Trump Responds to Supreme Court Tax Returns Decision: 'I Will Fight on, We Will Win'
A' continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country'
Donald Trump has responded to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to allow the release of his tax returns and other financial records as part of a criminal investigation.
Trump called the ruling "a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country."
"It never ends!" Trump said.
"So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S."

"This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo," Trump said.
"That’s what is done in third world countries," he continued.
"Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent."
"That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it."
"I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me," he said.
"We will win!"
The ruling directs Trump's accounting company Mazars USA to comply with a subpoena to turn over the taxes to the grand jury that was convened by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, a Democrat.
Mazars USA said it would not contest the subpoena and will comply with legal obligations.
The Supreme Court case is Trump v. Vance, 20A63.
