Tax Day demonstrators to demand Trump release his taxes

Tax Day demonstrators to demand Trump release his taxes

This year's Tax Day Marches on Saturday, planned in dozens of cities across the county, are expected to be the biggest political mass mobilization since January's Women's March, which some believe was the largest mass political mobilization ever recorded.

Throughout Trump's ascendance to the Oval Office, his camp has given a number of reasons for not releasing his returns including, but not necessarily limited to: the billionaire was under audit (which would not prevent a release), people don't care, it's a distraction and that it had already been addressed by Trump and was a dead issue.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators are preparing to hit the streets in midtown this weekend for a Tax March with chickens made to look like President Donald Trump to highlight the fact that the president remains coy on his tax returns.

In Washington, participants at the march portrayed the president as a greedy politician who refuses to be open about his financial dealings. The IRS has said that Trump can release his tax returns even while under audit.

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

The Pittsburgh Tax March will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at the City-County Building.

What many consider the most vocal demonstrations in the recent history of the United States, the woman's march took place after the presidential inaugural procedure, should be an example topped by the Tax-march tomorrow.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump called it a "very successful mission" and said he's "very proud of our military". Popular Mechanics described it as weighing as much as an F-16 fighter jet. "It is upon us, Afghans, to stop U.S. ".

As countless Americans rush to file their taxes before the federal deadline next week, they're also not forgetting the returns they've yet to see from President Donald Trump. According to The Washington Post, Jennifer Taub, a law professor specializing in business at Vermont Law School and one of the co-founders of the march in Washington, was partly motivated by Conway's statement to organize a protest.

Registered nurse Pam Craig of Greensboro says Trump's returns may show he has paid little or nothing to run the government he now heads.

Huge turnouts Saturday will tell Congress that those who side with Trump on tax secrecy should fear being voted out in 2018.

Speakers in Denver include Rep. Jared Polis D-Colorado, ACLU of Colorado executive director Nathan Woodliff-Stanley, state representatives Joseph Salazar, Chris Hansen and Edie Hooton.

Activists are marking Tax Day in MA by converging on Cambridge Common to demand President Donald Trump release all of his tax returns. Last month, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported on two pages of Trump's 2005 return that were obtained by investigative reporter David Cay Johnston and released by DCReport.org.

"(Trump) needs to make a choice", she said on Thursday. "He got, like, another 40,000 retweets and then every from Michael Moore to Beau Willimon to Sara Silverman were retweeting", Lesser said.
