#TaxDay Demonstrations In Several Cities Get A Presidential Response

Demonstrators hold signs at the during a Tax Day protest in Florence Ala. Members of Indivisible NW Alabama gathered to voice their request that President Donald Trump release his tax returns

‶I did what was an nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!

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. Every major presidential nominee has released their tax returns since the late 1970s.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer again claimed on Monday that an IRS audit is keeping Trump from releasing his tax returns.

In San Francisco, thousands of protesters demanding Trump's tax returns - and his ouster -were addressed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

One day earlier, Trump questioned if protesters over his tax returns were being paid, responding to the weekend's nationwide demonstrations seeking for the release of his tax returns.

Kinzinger also said that the vast majority of Americans want to see Trump's tax returns released, even though it's not a top priority for them, which recent polls confirm.

And on February 3, in the midst of major protests against Trump's first executive order on immigration, the president tweeted that "Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

"As far as I'm aware the President says he's still under audit", Cotton said as constituents loudly booed him and several raised their red flags showing disapproval.

Seventy-one-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong. She rode a bus from New Jersey to New York City with her friend Geraldine Markowitz, 83, to take part in protests.

"We'll have to get back to you on that", Spicer told a reporter Monday who asked if the time had come to say that Trump would never release his returns.

In Berkeley, California, police arrested at least 20 people at unrelated gatherings of about 200 pro- and anti-Trump people in a park after fist fighting erupted.

"Trump will not release his taxes [because] he has something to hide".

More than four months after winning the presidency, Trump continued to attack Clinton at a rally in Nashville, Tennessee, this March. 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.

"I think that the American public know clearly where he stands", Spicer said.

Democrats like Sen. Warren will continue to make the moral argument against Donald Trump and Republican economic ideology. In West Palm Beach, some of those marching said they'd taken part in protests nearly every weekend since Trump was sworn in.

Thirty-foot inflatable chickens will also go up at the marches in New York City and San Francisco, according to Kevin Donohoe, a Tax March organizer.
