Anti-Trump forces are planning a march on Tax Day, April 15, to try getting President Trump to release his taxes.
USA Today has more details on who is participating in the protest.
On April 15, the deadline for most Americans to file their 2016 returns, leaders from the Women’s March coalition and others, including MoveOn.org and the Indivisible Project, will hold a “Tax March” in Washington and at least 60 other locations. Those include New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Ark., and Boise, Idaho, organizers told USA TODAY.
The march will also seek to highlight inequality in the tax code whereby millionaires and billionaires use tax loopholes to pay a lower rate of tax than their workers, according to organizers. The main march will begin in Washington at 11 a.m. in front of the U.S. Capitol and proceed to the Trump Hotel at the Old Post Office. Trump’s deal with the General Services Administration to operate the hotel in that building states that the lease cannot be held by an elected official. Marchers will also pass the IRS building.
Throughout the entire presidential campaign, Trump was pressured to release his tax returns, an act that previous presidents have traditionally done. Although it is not mandatory to release them, there has been growing pressure for him to do so. He said he was waiting for an IRS audit to pass, but has changed his mind last month.
If I were Trump, I would release them if he has nothing to hide. Plus it would end all the speculations and pressure everyone is putting on him.
One thing that upsets me is the mainstream media paints the Tea Party as “extremists” for many years. Now, they portray leftists marching as heroic whenever they protest.
Let’s make one thing clear: They are not heroic as the Tea Party is.
