Tens of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets across the U.S. and beyond to press President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, including at a rally on Capitol Hill in Washington that featured an uncanny Trump look-alike.
WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES (APRIL 15, 2017) (NBC) – Tens of thousands of people were expected to take to the streets across the United States and beyond on Saturday (April 15) 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, were 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.
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” were planning events in more than 150 cities, including New York, Washington and Los Angeles, as well as cities in Europe, Japan and New Zealand.
