Moishe Mana says he’ll give $1M to charity if Trump reveals his tax returns

Moishe Mana has officially thrown his hat into the ring of high-profile business leaders touting #NeverTrump.

The Miami mega-developer said he’d donate $1 million to a charity of Donald Trump’s choice if the Republican presidential nominee made the last five years of his tax returns public, according to a report in The Hill.

Though he told The Hill he is not a big fan of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Mana said he has serious reservations about Trump’s rhetoric and vision for the country. “She’s the only thing left between us and Trump,” he said to The Hill.

Mana told the Hill that he thinks Trump is inflating his claims about having a net worth north of $10 billion, instead saying it’s more likely between $200 million and $300 million.

Trump’s tax returns would shed light on his net worth, as well as his business practices — a major selling point from his campaign, as the Hill pointed out.

Mana isn’t the first to call for Trump to make his returns public: David Brock, a political activist sided with Clinton, said earlier this month that a Republican donor was ready to cut a $5 million check to charity if Trump released his returns.

According to the Hill, a spokesperson from Trump’s camp had said he was being audited and couldn’t release the documentation. The IRS, however, said there was no reason Trump couldn’t open up the books.

Mana’s offer has a deadline of August 15, according to the Hill. He said he isn’t holding out hope that Trump will follow through, as he passed up on the previous proposal from the anonymous Republican donor.

Mana is a major land owner in downtown Miami and Wynwood, where he’s currently planning a large-scale international business and cultural center. He also developed the Mana Contemporary art complex in New Jersey that spans 35 acres. [The Hill] —Sean Stewart-Muniz
