Everything Trump has said about releasing his tax returns

Protesters march to demand Trump release tax returns

Trump is the first president since Jimmy Carter to refuse to release his tax information.

Donald Trump doesn't understand why people still want to see his taxes. He said they were being audited.

Saturdays marches coincided with the traditional April 15 deadline for filing federal tax returns although the date was pushed backed two days this year.

The Tax Day protesters called for Trump to release his tax returns - something almost all major presidential candidates have done since the 1970s - and call on lawmakers to represent their interests over those of major corporations. "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" read the tweet.

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.

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

Then after he won the election the President said this: "I'm not releasing my tax returns because as you know they're under audit".

Democrats like Sen. Warren will continue to make the moral argument against Donald Trump and Republican economic ideology.

Protesters in several American cities this weekend urged Trump to release his tax returns in demonstrations tied to Tax Day. Some hopeful anti-Trump voters speculate that the president's tax returns could contain a smoking gun that would show his overwhelming financial ties to Russian Federation. His next tweet offers a clue: "Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday".

Images of tax protesters in cities including Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and NY flooded social media.

But 71-year-old Ilene Singh says he's wrong. She said there's nothing to prevent Trump from releasing his income taxes and that "the simple truth is he's got a lot to hide".

"We'll make a determination over the next couple of months", he said.

On Saturday, thousands of people protested nationwide calling for Trump's returns.

Spicer said the administration has been "fairly transparent" with press and public regarding the president's business meetings and schedule.
