Protests are taking place in more than 150 points across the US to create pressure on President Trump to release tax returns. On Saturday, thousands of people came out to march through Midtown, demanding the release of his tax returns indicating that not only just the press but the general people are also interested to know the truth. Marchers are actively demonstrating in New Zealand, Europe and Japan as well besides in Los Angeles and Washington.
Marchers made a large inflated rooster with an angry expression and orange hairdo, which symbolizes Trump’s signature style. They also want it to be a law to release President’s tax return.
Trump broke a tradition by refusing to release his paper work during the US presidential campaign. His critics are interested to know about his deals and whether there is any conflict of interest. Critics also want to learn about his net worth and what else is there in his tax returns. At least twenty one got arrested from California during clashes between anti-Trump activists and his supporters.
There is no legal obligation requiring the President of the United States to release his tax returns, but Trump has comes under immense public pressure after some sensitive information from his 2005 tax returns got leaked to the media last month. The protests are taking place in a month when the Americans are required to file for their tax returns.
