Moishe Mana ups his offer: $2M to charity for Donald Trump’s tax returns

Developer Moishe Mana is showing his commitment to keeping Donald Trump out of the White House with a new offer: $2 million to charity in exchange for Trump’s tax returns.

Mana previously said he’ll donate $1 million to a charity of Trump’s choice if the Republican presidential nominee releases the last five years of his tax returns, but now he’s upping that offer, a spokesperson told The Real Deal. The Wynwood and downtown Miami developer, a Hillary Clinton supporter, has been adamant about his political views. In a video interview posted on Mana’s public Facebook page on Wednesday, Mana drew parallels between Trump and Hitler.

Mana said Trump “has a lot to hide,” and that he is likely inflating his net worth.

“He’s mortgaged by outside entities, we do not know the entities. We know he’s having [a] hard time getting money from local banks, because local banks know him. He will find tricks on how to not pay them,” Mana said in the video with Revolution Nation. “He doesn’t think about tomorrow.”

Trump’s tax returns would shed light on his net worth, as well as his business practices. The IRS has rejected claims by Trump’s camp that he was being audited and couldn’t release his tax records.

Mana said that as president, Trump would destroy the country. “Are we as a nation going to be subject to the mortgage he has with [Vladmir] Putin or an Arab country or God knows who?” he asked in the video. “We do not know and we must know.”

Mana, a major investor in downtown Miami and Wynwood, 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.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and billionaire and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett are among those to recently speak out against the possibility of a President Trump, with Buffett also calling for Trump to release his taxes.

Mana’s previous offer had a deadline of August 15, according to the Hill. Mana could not immediately be reached for comment. Katherine Kallergis
