Former US President Donald Trump has suffered defeat in a dispute over his tax records in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a Republican motion to block the delivery of the documents to a House committee. Trump had criticized the request of the Democrat-controlled committee as politically motivated. The businessman was the first president in four decades not to be like in the United States customarily published his tax returns. Critics therefore suspect that he has something to hide. Trump accused the Democrats of wanting to see the documents for political reasons. Democrats said they want to review whether changes to the law on presidential accountability are needed.
