Bernie Sanders admits he is a MILLIONAIRE

Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders announced he will release 10 years of his tax returns and revealed he is a millionaire thanks to his best-selling book 'Our Revolution.'

'I wrote a best-selling book,' he told The New York Times. 'If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.' 

Sanders said he would release his returns by Tax Day on Monday and said he hoped President Donald Trump would do the same.

'On the day in the very immediate future, certainly before April 15, we release ours, I hope that Donald Trump will do exactly the same. We are going to release 10 years of our tax returns, and we hope that on that day Donald Trump will do the same,' he told The Times.

Sanders did not release his tax returns when he ran for president in 2016, which did not garner much attention at the time.

Sanders, however, brushed aside any comparisons to the president
