Cotton booed for defending Trump on tax returns

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) faced a rowdy town hall on Monday, eliciting boos as he attempted to defend President Donald Trump's refusal to release his tax returns.

Piggybacking off the tax return comment, President Trump turned his fingers towards Saturday's Tax Marches, in which thousands marched through Manhattan and other us cities demanding Trump release his tax returns.

Although the American people will not be able to hold Trump accountable for what's in his tax documents, the IRS certainly will. Now he says the election has happened and he doesn't need to release his tax returns.

Asked if the president would ask the IRS to comment on the audit to prove it exists and provide a timeline for its completion, Spicer dodged.

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

Watch the clips above, via ABC. The rallies were a forum to draw attention to the fact that the nation has still not seen its president's tax returns, despite the fact that he intends to take up tax reform as his next big challenge. Now Tax Returns are brought up again?' Trump wrote. "It's a routine one that continues", he said.

Demonstrators in dozens of USA cities and towns, including Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Palm Beach, where Trump was spending Easter Weekend at his resort Mar-a-Lago, marched on Saturday to demand Trump release his tax returns. But tax returns would reveal much more.

Unless the agency finds evidence of a tax crime such as evasion and prosecutes the case, the only way the public may learn anything of what's in Trump's and Pence's returns is if they choose to voluntarily release them, which has become a tradition for the past 40 years. "This is something that he made very clear during the election cycle", Spicer said.

The practice of doing a "mandatory examination" of the presidential and vice presidential tax returns has been in the Internal Revenue Manual since the Watergate era, according to the IRS.

Those looking for President Donald Trump 's tax returns will likely have to keep waiting.

The Tax March was organized by a group affiliated with MoveOn.org, the Working Families Party, Stand Up America, and several other Democrat-affiliated or leaning groups, according to the Tax March website. "I mean, really?" Karl said. He began citing the ongoing audit as a reason not to release them in early 2016.
