Tax Day demonstrators demand that Trump release tax returns

People in cities across the country plan to march Saturday demanding that President Donald Trump release his tax returns.

Organizers hope the protests - dubbed the Tax March - will resonate with Americans who think the president should release his returns, as his recent predecessors have done.

The rally is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.

Their plan is to march from there to nearby Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.

The marches are clearly targeted at the president, but Price said he also wants people who feel passionately about this issue to know they're not alone.

"We march to demand that the president release his returns, as he has repeatedly promised, but failed, to do", the Tax March website reads. Since then it's spread across the country with dozens of marches purchasing chickens, Donohoe said.

"So I tweeted ... and said, 'Trump claims no one cares about his taxes".

"Along with being in public office, especially president, I think transparency is very important".

Jennifer Taub wrote a book on the 2008 financial crisis, delivered expert testimony to Congress and published reams of research and analysis on white collar crime and malfeasance.

"One way or another, we will see his tax returns, I believe", Taub said.

The chants of lock him up in the nation's capital show that people more than care.

These inflatable snow-white roosters with Trumpian gold combs and wattles flew to America by jet thanks to author Danelle Morton, a march organizer. Democratic lawmakers gave organizers a shout-out before heading home for their longest break since Trump took the oath of office on January 20. It's something every president and presidential nominee has done for the past 40 years.

Trump recently said that USA people don't care about his tax returns at all, on contrary a poll shows 74% Americans are in favor of releasing them. The exception was Gerald Ford. "Trump's businesses around the world raise so many questions about whether his policies serve the national interest or his own bottom line". "And we got 2,000", Petersen said. Worse, this week it was reported that Trump is officially putting tax reform on hold to give health care another go.

The post Tax March protests call for the release of Trump's returns appeared first on PBS NewsHour. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Reps. Ted Lieu and Brad Sherman, State Sen. "We're talking about intensity". More than eight in 10 Republicans (86 percent) express confidence in the President's ability to make the right decisions about tax reform, but most Democrats (80 percent) and independents (54 percent) do not. So far, Republicans have handily defeated Democratic efforts to take that course of action.
