Donald Trump blasts Tax return protests he says were paid for

The protest was part of a national Tax March taking place in approximately 150 cities calling on President Trump to release his taxes

The election is long over and the debate over Trump's taxes has raged for far too long, and yet on Tax Day Saturday, April 15, thousands took to the streets across the country to demand that President Trump at long last release his tax returns.

In Berkeley, California, police arrested at least 20 people after fist fighting erupted at separate unrelated rallies in a park where about 200 people for or against Trump had gathered.

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.

He tweeted Sunday: "Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday". "The election is over!" "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" he followed up at 9 a.m.

From there, at 9:07 a.m., Trump dove into a subject near and dear to his heart: His electoral college win.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed Monday that Trump's taxes were still under audit, which would not technically preclude them from being released.

"We need to see Trump's tax returns as a matter of transparency", Shockley said. However, many tax experts say Trump is not barred from releasing the information during the audit.

But 71-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong. But that's not what Americans said at rallies across the country on Saturday.

"I have very big returns, as you know, and I have everything all approved and very lovely and we'll be working that over in the next period of time, Chuck", Trump said. "I hope Republicans see it".

One ad aimed at Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Ala., urges people to thank him "for standing with President Trump to repeal Obamacare now".

The release of tax returns by presidential candidates is not mandatory.

"If he thinks he can get away with playing king, he's got another thought coming", Waters said.

Critics say Trump's failure to release returns raises conflict-of-interest questions about his business empire. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, said Trump's refusal to release his tax returns will make it harder for Congress to pass a tax reform deal, which is a top GOP priority.

Spicer's comments come after several "Tax March" demonstrations took place in almost 150 cities on Saturday, demanding the disclosure of this information.

Protesters began converging on Cambridge Common in Massachusetts, where they also plan to call on the all-Democratic Massachusetts Congressional delegation to oppose Trump's budget proposal.
