Tax protests arouse presidential ire, but there's no way Trump is releasing his returns

Written by  Fox News

Well, the tax protesters got the president’s attention.

The weekend rallies, with a handful of celebrities sprinkled among them, used the tax filing season to demand that Donald Trump release his returns.

That demand will be about as effective as North Korea’s latest missile test.

But the protests did produce a pair of presidential tweets: “I did what was an almost impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?”

Trump’s view is that he got himself elected while defying the demands that he release his returns, and that settles the issue. And it’s true that the issue never got that much traction, except in the media.

Leaving aside his explanation of being under audit, Trump’s essential message is: “Read My Lips. No Tax Returns.”

In a second tweet, he said: “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!” One organizer denied that anyone was paid.

The protesters turned out in such cities as Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago and Denver. In Berkeley, 21 people were arrested as the demonstrators clashed with Trump supporters in a melee that included rocks, sticks and smoke bombs—the kind of violence that gives peaceful protest a bad name.

These Obama ZOMBIES, are idiots! Why aren't they asking for Clinton's emails. Are these people really this crazy? There is no law stating that any President has to show their tax returns. These people need to get jobs and get off our streets.

I've always said it's nobodies business what Presidents Trump's taxes are! Leave it up to the IRS to determine if he broke any laws. Not only that, but his taxes are filled out by a CPA FIRM!

"But all we had to do was whine, stomp the flag, and see how much noise we could make, and our former president would issue a command that we get whatever we want."
