Thursday was not a wonderful day for President Donald Trump when Supreme Court ruled against Trump’s struggles to resist turning over of his financial papers to the grand jury of New York, which could cause significant problems for him once he replaces from office.
Legally, Thursday was a very bad day for President Trump. Politically, however, it was a pretty darn good day for him, cementing the fact that the public isn’t going to get a look at his tax returns before the November election. | Analysis by @CillizzaCNN https://t.co/2MnFauZXnx

Though, politically Thursday was a good day for President Trump when he cemented the fact that the people are not going to take a look at his tax returns before November’s election. Besides this, the judge rejected the United States House’s try to take a look at the President’s taxes, which would have confirmed they have slipped publicly and also in case of NY grand jury. Moreover, the court remanded the cases to a lower-court, which means that President Trump is not showing his financial records to anybody.
These two decisions avoid an election doomsday situation for the President, the public release of a briefed look at Trump’s financial background before he would face voters for the second time. President Trump and he will remain, the only basic presidential candidate to show zero previous tax returns. Although, former Vice President, Joe Biden, shared his 2017 & 2018 tax returns in the last summer. The President has extensively used the legal system to postpone unpleasant results for him.
Both cases look similar but not same
If it looks counterintuitive, it is significant because of the complex situation of these 2 cases that are ruled by the court on Thursday. Furthermore, both cases look similar, but not the same, and both held differing stakes for President Trump.
In the NY case, (President Trump v. Vance) the call of the Trump’s tax returns was particularly with respect to the ongoing grand jury inspection seeing into whether President or the President Trump’s Organization dishonored laws of the state in link with hush money transactions pushed toward two women (Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal) during the 2016 election. Furthermore, both ladies have accused that President Trump had organized extramarital matters with them.
A media outlet, CNN, reported that the inspection has even looked into whether business details documented with the state were untrue and in case if any of the tax acts were violated.
Moreover, the court said that President Trump was not enclosed by presidential immunity, and he had to turn over the subpoenaed papers. However, they inspected the case, which signifies that the turn over will not occur abruptly.
