Trump on protests demanding release of his taxes: 'The election is over'
Apr 21 2017 by Larry Hoffman
Trump has repeatedly refused to do so, saying he is under an IRS audit. The IRS performs mandatory tax audits of all US presidents while they're in office.
At first, Trump was open about wanting to release his returns. Such an audit does not prevent Trump from automatically releasing his returns. What would his tax returns say about his belief in personal civic responsibility and a fair economy? "And I would love to do that". "If he didn't, he'd show his taxes".
The Hill reports that press traveling the usual way in vans came upon "hundreds of protesters" along the route demanding Trump release his returns.
"We can not have a president who is loyal to his money", Libeling said to the crowd.
They appeared to show that Mr Trump paid $38m (£30m) on an income of more than $150m (£120m).
He also may have sizable non-recourse debt, loans that are backed not by Trump himself but by the real estate projects his partnership is developing. In West Palm Beach, some of those marching said they'd taken part in protests nearly every weekend since Trump was sworn in. He said that tax returns "have 0 to do w/ someone's net worth". But tax returns would reveal much more.
The president then followed up by repeating an unsubstantiated claim he's made before that some of the protesters against him were "paid", an allegation that became popular in some right-wing circles in the build up to the 2016 presidential election, before noting that the election was "over".
Sue to the significance of April 15, what has bee tax day for many years, this protest was one of roughly 150 that were taking place nationwide.
"I've had it for years". Elizabeth Warren questioned whether Trump was attempting to hide mob ties or unsavory foreign business connections.

A handful of other Republicans facing irate town hall crowds have said that Trump should release his returns. "The election is over", he tweeted.
Trump has previously said Americans don't care about his returns.
"I don't mind releasing. As soon as the audit's finished, it will be released", he said.
"Look, Donald Trump has filed over 100 pages of financial disclosure, which is what the law requires", Pence said. Congress should demand the release of his tax return.
Trump, who beat Hillary Clinton in the electoral college despite losing the popular vote by almost 3m ballots, was the first major-party nominee in more than 40 years not to release his tax returns, reneging on a campaign commitment to release them.
Trump tweeted Sunday: "I did what was an nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!" "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" "It's a routine one that continues", he said.
"What can you tell us about how you got these pages?"
