Tax March: Thousands in Denver demand to see Trump's tax returns

Tax March: Thousands in Denver demand to see Trump's tax returns

On Saturday, April 15, the day traditionally recognized as the day US taxes are due, citizens gathered across the country to protest President Donald Trump still keeping his tax returns under wraps.

The march was not entirely peaceful as at least 21 people were arrested in California after Trump's supporters and opponents clashed at a march in Berkeley. "The election is over!" Trump tweeted. ‶Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. She rode a bus from New Jersey to New York City with her friend Geraldine Markowitz, 83, to take part in protests.

The day before most Americans must file their taxes, the White House press corps pushed Spicer to explain when Trump would share his tax returns.

Others helping organize the events Saturday included labor unions and activist groups such as MoveOn.org and Common Cause.

'I did what was an nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! An obscure IRS rule (section 4.2.1.11) establishes that the tax returns of every president and vice president are subjected to mandatory audits every single year.

In fact, in response to the protests on Saturday, President Trump issued a series of tweets suggesting that the protests were disingenuous and that the issue no longer mattered.

People march demanding President Donald Trump release his tax returns, in NY, U.S., April 15, 2017. He also denounced the White House visitor logs, which TIME reported that President Trump will not be releasing, saying he's "not running a B & B".

Many lawmakers, including some Republicans, have also called on him to make them public.

Many seem convinced that Trump's returns would prove somehow that he ought to be ineligible for the presidency - much as President Barack Obama's most vociferous critics (Trump among them) were convinced that his birth certificate would show information that would have made him unelectable or ineligible.

Others at the march said they'd been out protesting nearly every weekend since Trump was sworn in. "We're here to say we care", said Singh.

Ellen Lodwick, 67, a retired corporate researcher from Maryland who has participated in all the local anti-Trump demonstrations since his November 8 election, cast doubt on his business dealings.

The release of tax returns by presidential candidates is not mandatory.

A resident at Cotton's town hall Monday said that Trump's tax returns would expose his overseas interests - a hint at the central role Trump's tax returns have taken in the continuing investigations into Russia's meddling with U.S. elections.
