"I did what was an nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!" "I'm wondering if you'll take the initiative to have him release those returns", the constituent asked, "so we can see what kind of connections he has with different countries around the world, and what tax proposals would personally benefit him and his family".

According to PolitiFact, Trump is the first major party presidential nominee since Gerald Ford to not release his tax returns. "He normally puts his name on buildings where he has them", Cotton said Monday at a town hall in Little Rock, to loud boos from the audience.

"Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday".

Thousands chanted and marched Saturday demanding the release of his returns so the public can examine his business ties and determine whether he has links to foreign powers.

The march was held on the traditional April 15 deadline for the United States federal tax returns, the filing however has been pushed back by two days.

President Donald Trump like other Americans is supposed to file his taxes by Tuesday's deadline, but that doesn't mean the public will get to see his elusive returns. The tax day protests in more than a dozen cities were largely peaceful, though occasionally demonstrators and some pro-Trump groups taunted each other in face-to-face exchanges. He says it is because he was under audit and that voters don't care.

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

Two of the biggest tax marches took place in NY and Los Angeles, with each drawing about 5,000 people, according to estimates by Reuters reporters. Even so, Lisa Saunders said she's not optimistic this national protest would lead the president to release his taxes.

There were no reports of violence or arrests, in contrast to a clash between Trump supporters and opponents that erupted at a rally in Berkeley, California, where nine people were arrested.

The protesters on Saturday demanded Trump to release his taxes like his White House predecessors have done for more than 40 years.

But Randall Pitre, of San Dimas, California, said the issue is transparency, adding that nobody knows if it's a big deal "because we don't know what he's hiding".

More than 100 similar marches are scheduled across the country on Saturday. Trump's break with precedent has raised questions about possible conflicts of interest. It has legal authority to obtain confidential tax records, and could vote to make them public.
