Trump must release tax returns

20 April 2017

From there, at 9:07 a.m., Trump dove into a subject near and dear to his heart: His electoral college win.

Although it's not legally required for a president to release his or her tax returns, all presidents in the last 40 years have done so.

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

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!"

On Saturday, in marches held in Washington DC, Los Angeles and in cities worldwide, thousands demanded a chance to examine Trump's business ties and determine whether he has links to foreign powers.

Trump "has to file taxes by tomorrow like all of us", Cuban said ahead of Tax Day on Tuesday.

More than 100 protesters gathered Saturday in downtown Rochester, joining demonstrations nationwide that demanded President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on April 17 said President Trump is still under audit from the Internal Revenue Service. Yesterday, in Washington, New York and dozens of other cities, protesters loudly said that's not the case.

"We're under the same audit that existed", Spicer said.

The march was not entirely peaceful as at least 21 people were arrested in California after Trump's supporters and opponents clashed at a march in Berkeley.

Every time Trump makes a move as president, from altering trade policy to easing Wall Street regulations, the American public will wonder what's in it for him. But tax officials have said he can in fact release them if he so wishes.

"The president is also right that this was not a secondary or side issue of the campaign this was a central issue of the campaign". In West Palm Beach, some of those marching said they'd taken part in protests nearly every weekend since Trump was sworn in. "We're here to say we care", said Singh. Trump's break with precedent has raised questions about possible conflicts of interest.
