Protesters march to demand Trump release tax returns

Protesters march to demand Trump release tax returns”

On Monday, a day before the deadline for most Americans to pay their 2016 taxes, White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced that Trump's most recent taxes are being audited and will not be released.

Wes Shockley, one of the organizers of the New York City march, told NBC News that it was imperative for the public to have access to the president's taxes in order to properly gauge his potential conflicts of interest.

"We'll have to get back to you on that", Spicer replied.

Despite the growing consensus among Americans that Trump should release his returns, the president refuses to budge, saying in a tweet that we should instead continue to fawn over his "impossible" Electoral College win in last fall's election.

Protesters in Raleigh, N.C., said they suspect that Trump's returns might show he has paid little or nothing to the government he now heads, or that he was indebted to Russian, Chinese or other foreign interests.

The promise that he made about releasing his taxes was inconvenient and he will not abide by it unless he is somehow forced by law to release the returns.

And then there was President Donald Trump, who called Erdoğan to congratulate him on the win. Turkey should "consider the next steps very carefully", an European Union spokesman said .

The process for auditing the return of the president and vice president is very precisely spelled out in the manual, including the instruction that their returns must be filed in an orange folder. "He normally puts his name on buildings where he has them", Cotton said Monday at a town hall in Little Rock, to loud boos from the audience. The issue of the president's no-show on his tax returns touches on a variety of accountability issues.

Trump suggested that rallies in Florida, New York and Washington, among other U.S. cities, were an extension of the battle for an election that is "over". Here's what I think I know about Trump's tax returns. Trump wrote on Twitter that "someone" should investigate "who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday".

On Saturday morning, chickens could be spotted on the steps of the Capitol building and outside the Trump Hotel.

Cuban wrote that it was important for Trump to release his tax returns "now more than ever".

-David Young (IA): "You run for president, you're president, you should release your tax returns". And, Trump and the White House will not even give us a copy of the audit letter, an innocuous document, so I don't think there's any reason to believe Donald Trump is actually under audit if they won't produce audit letters.

Trump also claimed that the public doesn't care about the issue, though a majority of Americans have repeatedly told pollsters that they favor seeing the commander in chief's tax returns.
