The rallies were largely peaceful but in Berkeley, California, police arrested 13 people at unrelated gatherings in a park after fistfights broke out between pro- and anti-Trump factions.

Police in riot gear confiscated sticks, knives and fireworks that were being hurled in the melee, after failed efforts to separate the events with makeshift fencing.

'Someone should look into who paid for the small organised rallies yesterday. "The election is over!"

On Saturday, people across America marched in order to politely request that the president release his tax returns.

While some may consider this debate long over and fruitless, the reality is that a whopping 80 percent of Americans want the President to increase his transparency by releasing his tax returns.

In blasting the protesters, Trump tweeted that "I did what was nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican easily won the Electoral College!"

While the Easter Bunny delivered treats Sunday morning, Trump delivered tweets in response to Saturday's Tax March. "We'll have to get back to you on that", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

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

Seventy-one-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong.

"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".

Democrats like Sen. Warren will continue to make the moral argument against Donald Trump and Republican economic ideology. "I hope Republicans see it".

"If he thinks he can get away with playing king, he's got another thought coming", Waters said. Many seem convinced that Trump's returns would prove somehow that he ought to be ineligible for the presidency - much as President Barack Obama's most vociferous critics (Trump among them) were convinced that his birth certificate would show information that would have made him unelectable or ineligible. Experts believe those records would uncover any of Trump's financial conflicts of interest, including possible business ties to Russian Federation.

Karl: "Is it time to just say once and for all the president is never going to release his tax returns?"

Wes Shockley, one of the organizers of the New York City march, told NBC News that it was imperative for the public to have access to the president's taxes in order to properly gauge his potential conflicts of interest.
