Clinton will 'dance in the streets' with Buffett if she wins

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton criticises Republican rival Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns and backs up investor Warren Buffett's proposal for the two businessmen to answer questions about their finances.

OMAHA, NEBRASKA (REUTERS) - US investor Warren Buffett, speaking at a campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, challenged Republican Donald Trump on Monday (Aug 1) to release his tax return and let people ask the two of them questions about their finances.

Clinton threw her weight behind the idea during the campaign stop in Omaha, Nebraska.

"I want to throw in to the challenge that Warren made," said Clinton.

"If this congressional district has the highest percentage of votes in any congressional district, and of course, if I win, here's what we'll do. Shortly after I become president, sometime as soon as I can arrange it, come back here, and Warren and I will dance in the streets together."

Trump has said he would not release his returns until the Internal Revenue Service has completed an audit.
