Trump Lashes Out at Tax Return Protesters: Who Paid Them?

Trump Lashes Out at Tax Return Protesters: Who Paid Them?

"It's the same thing that was discussed during the campaign: The president is under audit", White House Press Secretary Spicer said Monday when asked if Trump would release his 2016 returns.

Can President Donald Trump win public and Congressional support for any tax reform plan he proposes without releasing his full tax returns? Some hopeful anti-Trump voters speculate that the president's tax returns could contain a smoking gun that would show his overwhelming financial ties to Russian Federation.

The rally here in Orlando on Saturday morning drew several hundred people who marched around Lake Eola, past Senator Bill Nelson's office and ending at his Republican colleague, Senator Marco Rubio's office. MTN News spoke with one of the event organizers who says the Kalispell event was full of energy.

Confronted repeatedly by his refusal to release his tax returns, Trump has claimed that he will release them when he is no longer under audit from the IRS, though there are no rules stipulating that he can not release his tax returns while he is under audit.

Kizer was benched later in the year, another odd mile marker in a disappointing campaign for the Fighting Irish. It reads kinda insane to mention Brady and Newton, but in the context he is considering it, sure, I get it.

Mr Trump has previously claimed protesters at his rallies, and at Republican town hall meetings, were paid.

Trump appears to have decided that any fallout from not releasing his returns is potentially less damaging to him then releasing them.

Spicer's comments come after several "Tax March" demonstrations took place in almost 150 cities on Saturday, demanding the disclosure of this information. Pressed on whether Trump was prepared to rule out ever releasing his tax returns, Spicer demurred: "I'll have to get back to you on that". Every president and vice president has their tax returns automatically audited.

NBC Reporter Blayne Alexander questioned citizens on the street, "Does it bother you at all that president has not yet released his tax returns?" One tax scholar thinks there might be an easier way to find out more about Trump's finances through his state tax returns.
