White House says Trump won't release his 2016 taxes, either


Thousands of voters from all over the country marched on Saturday to show President Donald Trump that they do indeed care about his tax returns.

On April 15, marchers took to the streets across the U.S.to demand that President Donald Trump hand his returns over to the American public.

Spicer was asked if Trump would ever release his tax returns and replied, "I'd have to get back to you on that".

A resident at Cotton's town hall Monday said that Trump's tax returns would expose his overseas interests - a hint at the central role Trump's tax returns have taken in the continuing investigations into Russia's meddling with USA elections.

According to PolitiFact, Trump is the first major party presidential nominee since Gerald Ford to not release his tax returns. In fact, publicizing tax filings has only been a custom in the United States since Richard Nixon released his tax returns in 1973 during the backlash of the Watergate Scandal.

Seventy-one-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong.

Images of tax protesters in cities including Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and NY flooded social media. Now Tax Returns are brought up again?' Trump wrote.

"I think the president's view on this has been very clear from the campaign, and the American people understood it when they elected him in November", Spicer said.

Mr. Trump says he can't release them because he's under audit.

"Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday", he said in a subsequent tweet. Presidents are not required...
