Spicer says Trump is "still under audit"

20 April 2017, 06:59 | Kelvin Horton

"Let's see what Donald Trump is up to".

Trump is the first president in more than 40 years that has not publicized his tax returns.

The IRS has stated there is no reason his returns can not be released at any time.

The Trump tax marches were launched by a single tweet, organizers said.

The "tax march" protests were held in about 150 cities and towns Saturday, including outside the president's Florida estate where he is spending the weekend.

Saturday's tax demonstrations were timed to take place days before Tuesday's deadline for taxpayers to file their returns.


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. Officers confiscated knives and makeshift weapons. The president is under audit.

Many Democrats have called on Trump to make his returns public, but Kinzinger is one of only a few Republican voices to join their call.

"I think all of us are happy that he heard us, just for one simple reason, it's the point of protests", Shockley said.

But 71-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong.

"We bring people in, we release participant lists, we give press the opportunity to come into the room, so I would respectfully disagree with that", he said. "And you know full well that President Trump and his family are complying with all the ethical rules, everything they need to do to step away from his businesses and be a full-time president", she added. Speaking for myself, I am still waiting to see President Clinton's and President Obama's medical records, and Obama's school records. Mr. Trump tweeted before following up seven minutes later with accusations about the protests themselves.

"His reputation.as a businessman and, more importantly, as a true American, a person who is concerned with American values, would be totally destroyed if all his financial information was made public", said Mike Mannshardt, a retired teacher. The Trump administration spokesman deflected when asked if Trump would authorize the IRS to release details of the audit, saying "the president's view on this has been very clear" and "the American people understood it" when they elected him.
