The US Treasury will not hand President Donald Trump's tax returns over to Democratic lawmakers, defying a demand from Congress, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Monday May 6th, reported AFP.

The request by the House Committee on Ways and Means "lacks a legitimate purpose," meaning the US Treasury is not authorized to release tax filings by Trump and his businesses, Mnuchin said in a letter the committee's chairman.
