SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – President Donald Trump’s tax returns continue to be a heated topic. And, as tax day approaches, protests are happening nationwide, demanding the president release his tax returns. Over the weekend, protesters took to Congressman Buddy Carter’s office to demand he do something to make Trump’s returns public. They said the president has an obligation to respond to the demands of the American people.
“Trump has made promise after promise, after promise, after promise that he would share his taxes with us,” protester Laraine Montgomery said. “Having it under audit is no excuse especially since it’s April 15, 2016. So there’s no reason at all that those taxes should not be released to us.”
No law requires that President Trump release his tax returns. It has become a custom for the president to release his tax returns publicly after filing them.
Trump did take to Twitter, posting “Someone should look into who paid for the small, organized rallies … the election is over!”
