Tax Day demonstrators demand that Trump release tax returns

16 Avril 2017

Several hundred people demanded President Donald Trump release his tax returns during a peaceful demonstration and march amidst a significant police presence Saturday that began at Hemming Park.

This year's National Tax Day, the IRS filing deadline for 2016 tax returns, is on Tuesday.

North Carolina demonstrators said Saturday that President Donald Trump's refusal to release his income tax returns - breaking a four-decade presidential tradition - caused them to worry about what he might be hiding. They coincide with the traditional April 15 deadline for tax returns.

Attending her first march in Washington since the election of Trump, local resident and funeral home employee CJ Ingram said, "I'm really mad because he made Barack Obama produce his birth certificate and he's not even producing his tax returns".

Silverman and others questioned what Trump is hiding by not showing his tax returns to the public, including possible ties to Russian Federation and other conflicts of interest.

The rally came as protesters are taking to the streets across the country to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns. "We need to be as transparent and as accountable as possible".

Almost 10,000 people in Chicago indicated on Facebook they would attend demonstrations, CBS Chicago reports. "We're going to be seen as the rightful Americans, and we're going to be seen on the ones who are on the right side of history", said speaker Eric Miller of Olympia.

What about the response from Democrats about Trump's decision not release his tax returns? . "People didn't care. They voted for him", she said on ABC News' "This Week".

Many carried signs declaring "Disclose Your Taxes" and "Not My President". Dierdorff is expecting 700 to 800 people from the Pikes Peak region. Most carried signs and some wore the signature pink hats from the January 21 Women's March that drew millions and helped spawn the Tax Day protest. Dozens of police officers in riot gear standing nearby quickly arrested one man. Others were taken into custody as fistfights broke out.

Colorado rallies are planned in Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Gunnison and Pueblo. And last October, The New York Times reported that Trump had declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 federal tax return, citing three pages of documents from the return.

"The partisan divide is greater today than it was in the past". "We have to see the truth behind our president". "Every meeting, every speech gets full-fledged attention".

Marchers took place in New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and many other cities.

Despite the rallies being scheduled an hour apart, Barry does not anticipate any trouble.

There's no way to know for sure how large the crowds will be.
