Protesters to take to streets to demand Trump release tax returns

Written by  Reuters

NEW YORK Tens of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets across the United States and beyond on Saturday to press President Donald Trump to release his tax returns and to dispute his claim that the public does not care about the issue.

The demonstrations, organized by a loose coalition of labor and left-leaning groups with various economic agendas, are intended to focus on Trump's refusal to disclose his tax-paying history, something his predecessors in the White House have done for more than 40 years.

"When we check in with our members, this is something they care about deeply," said Ben Wikler, Washington director of MoveOn.org, a progressive political group.

Critics have raised questions about what Trump's tax returns say about his net worth and about his various business ties.

Organizers of "Tax March" are planning events in more than 150 cities, including New York, Washington and Los Angeles, as well as cities in Europe, Japan and New Zealand.

As a candidate and as president, Trump has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit by the Internal Revenue Service. In September, he told ABC News, "I don't think anybody cares, except some members of the press.

DON'T DO IT!!! mister President these are the same MORONS that keep screamin "THE RUSSIANS ARE COMMIN ,THE RUSSIANS ARE COMMIN", don't forget these MORONS support SANCTUARY CITIES (no don't worry about RADIAL MUSLIMS )and hey let's ALL forget about NORTH KOREA missile tests, NOTHIN TO WORRY ABOUT THERE, .... SO mister President jus.keep don the job you were ELECTED to do, HOPEFULLY sooner or later these MORONS will get on board, it's just these folks aren't used to seein a President that ACTUALLY works for the people, GREAT JOB SO FAR, KEEP IT UP!!!

It is NOT a.law that you must show your tax returns, it is simply another way of proving what you do.
The Media has pushed and pushed on this issue. And they have excited enough anti Trumpers to get on board. How sad is this.
Trump should continue to do things he promised he would do. I do think that one day in the middle of his first term he lays the returns all out and sits back and laughs at the media. What a fun day that will be.
The liberals should get on board with what is important - The American People!

I could careless about his tax returns. This is a distraction from those without principles. He demonstrates his honoring his word. We haven't seen that in the executive office for 8 to 12 years.

Liberals! I'm so sick of hearing these crybabies. Why didn't these "people" make these type of demands when obama hid all of his records when they elected him back in 2008? Would seem to me that those records would be more "interesting" than anyone's tax returns. Would appear that these demonstrations are merely more of the distractions thrown out there in attempts to stop the make America great again movement?

Every Presidential Candidate In My Lifetime Has Always Released Their Tax Returns...And I've Voted In Every Presidential Election Since I Was 18yrs.old...I'm Now 62yrs.old. I Just Wonder What If Anything President Trump Is Trying To Hide..?

Who cares what some lame ass protestor wants. Presidents don't have to give that info. Would anyone of us? NO WAY, no ones business no matter what other Presidents did! You suppose the Clintons added in all the pay for play monies....NO. Protestors need to find a job like the rest of us:)

Before any tax forms gets released I demand all papers unsealed and shown to the public who the Muslim FRAUD Bath HOUSE Chicago LGBT criminal really is.That is the most important as this FRAUD was pushed thru by the crime syndicate Democrat party.Taxes paid by Trump is nothing compared to the nation being destroyed by a RAUD

Most of those who did NOT vote for President Trump want to see his tax returns. Most of those who did NOT vote for obumer want to see a REAL birth certificate and maybe also his sealed college records and REAL Social Security card/number since those items are seriously in question and with good reason. I would like to see "Michelle's" birth certificate as well since there is significant evidence the she is a he and the "daughters" are likely adopted.

It's really too bad they can't see they are being used by the very people that will trample them underfoot when the time comes.....that is REAL stupidity ............

I am pushing Trey Gowdy and also Judicial Watch to demand all papers on the FRAUD unsealed.That will be the awakening of all times for the STUPID who voted for this criminal

Bill Tex has the exact correct idea. Who are these asses to demand anything anyway? There being paid by both the liberals and Soros to demand his tax returns and it's none of their business if he paid $200.00 or $200,000.00 in taxes they won't get crap from it. It's another liberal political scam and I hope Pres Trump tells them to stuff it as deep as possible and the deamoncrats as well.

Who cares about his tax returns, they are all going to look like the last one we saw, it is going to say he paid more in taxes in one year than I will make in my whole life! Who cares!?! What about Obama?? How about his records? You know the ones he had sealed so no one could look? Let's have a look at those and see what a traitor he really is and how he never should have been allowed to even run for president!

Trump should release his returns when Obama unseals his records so that every liberal can see how stupid they were to vote for this Muslim fraud.

We have no inherent right to see anyone else's tax returns. If anyone thinks they cannot vote for anyone without seeing the returns, the solution is not to vote for that person....simple enough?

You can bet your hind leg 90% of those protesters or loons have never paid a dime in taxes as there to lazy to get a job. It's just more liberal way of finding out who all Pres Trump has as his business associates and they can bug them with threats and opposition to their business. It's none of their damn business.

Trump turning over his tax returns is a no win/all lose situation! No matter what he turns over MSM and Demonrats will never be satisfied! If there isn't anything; then we will hear it was fraudulent, not the real thing, etc. If there is something wrong, it still won't satisfy Demonrats who will want to dig up more dirt or see him prosecuted. These same Demonrats haven't questioned why the Clinton Foundation which is a 501 tax free Non-Governmental Organization corruptedly received monies to fund the Clinton Crime Syndicate lifestyle under an obvious fraud of a 501. Let us know when Demonrats do that!! Until then I see no reason for Trump to release his tax returns. At least he hasn't taken bribes as obviously like Killary or gotten people killed with no consequences; that's what I as an Independent am more concerned about!!

What the alinsky loons are after are Trump connections to to demconize, call boycotts on and create conspiracy theories against.
This many poeple do NOT show up to protest a tax return release, at least not unless their was a criminal issue the IRS-- which there is not , hasn't been and has never been leveled at Trump..
These people are PAID Protesters who would not b there otherwise.. AUDIT THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS-- The people have a right to know THIS..

The most ridiculous childish protest I've ever heard of. A difference that makes no difference IS NO difference. The IRS is satisfied, so should everyone else be. Who of you wants to publish your tax returns? So silly, so ludicrous, so ridiculous! We have such bigger fish to fry and you're wanting to be a voyeur. How sad.

Those who have things to hide generally try to hide them. Just common sense

You with very little doubt may be the biggest dufus I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Luckily you have a glass stomach otherwise you would run into walls and hurt yourself. That is just how far your head is up your ass!

Why don't all you snowflakes just go home and stick your heads back up your ass.

Hey, Bob ! I thought I told you to shut the fuck up.

Liberals/protesters: It is not a requirement of law; get over it. The IRS has his forms. If there's anything suspicious, they can check it out. I'm still waiting for Obama's real birth certificate, and that my friends IS very much a requirement of law!

Here is a perfect example of liberals in action. They protest and ignore the law to protect "Illegal Aliens" in their "Sanctuary City" and put a 75 year old Army Vet in jail for displaying a flag.

Who really cares?? Just those rabid Democrats who only want to cause trouble around the Globe! It is not an American law, and he doesn't have to/shouldn't have to, If it was only done for forty years, that does NOT make it a law of our Constitution!! AND...who cares?? Only the Demotroublemakercrats!!

Trump is too busy to do his own returns, so the tax man, I am sure, has everything in order. Nobody needs to bring it all up. Who cares?

All those idiots who are out protesting are apparently stupid. How many of them would even be able to understand his tax returns. IF he were to release them all, and how it's all tied to his businesses they would be stumped. IF he had done anything shady back when he announced he we running for President, do they honestly think that Obama's IRS led by Lois Lerner wouldn't have tried to put him in jail? As it is, we know for a fact the IRS was used to hammer Conservative groups and favored anybody on the left, so the fact that Trump hasn't ever been charged with anything other than being audited, which I personally have been auditted before too, should tell them something.. There is NOTHING THERE.

Do they want to see he paid more taxes than politicians, again? So what if hisCOH isn't a much as he said, or maybe more. If I were in his position I wouldn't release everything either, might give away business methods his relatives could use in the future. Lifelong politicians aren't in that kind of situation and his business bankruptcies are available to the public. Maybe he will release them if "Planned" Parenthood releases full financial statements.
