Demonstrators in Chicago demand Trump release tax returns

The rally came as protesters are taking to the streets across the country to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns.

In a Quinnipiac University poll released on April 4, more than two-thirds of the respondents said Trump should publicly release his tax returns.

Trump may have seen some of the protesters Saturday as he went by vehicle from Mar-a-Lago to his golf club in West Palm Beach. In September, he told ABC News, "I don't think anybody cares, except some members of the press". Timing their march to coincide with the deadline to file tax returns to the U.S. Treasury, march organizers said they do care.

Whether it resonates beyond Tax Day - which is typically April 15, though the IRS is pushing the deadline to Tuesday - is unclear. A day after the massive January 21 women's march in Washington and other cities, comedy writer Frank Lesser tapped out on Twitter, "Trump claims no one cares about his taxes". "We march because it is in the best interest of the American people to know what financial entanglements and conflicts of interest our leaders have".

"We're marching on Washington, D.C., and around the country to ask Donald Trump: WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?" the organizers' website says.

Final day of campaigning before crucial Turkey referendum
Under the proposed changes, Erdogan could have his term limit effectively reset and stay in power through 2029. He also appealed to voters of other parties to approve the changes so "Turkey can leap into the future".

Robert Saplin was one of several hundred protesters who marched along the Intracoastal Waterway to a bridge just a few hundred yards from the president's private club, Mar-a-Lago.

That Trump will cave to the pressure and release his full tax returns appears unlikely, considering the president has said he won't amid an ongoing IRS audit and the White House saying recently that he will not.

"Without seeing his taxes, we'll never really know who he's working for", said Dinkin, who expects the marches to draw at least 100,000 protesters.

"It's possible that he can now show his taxes, because his current taxes are not being audited", said Demerlis.

The White House has frequently dismissed calls for Trump to release his taxes, with advisers claiming that the issue is of more interest to the media than the American people. Federal tax authorities say that does not bar him from releasing the returns.

Earlier, Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, called on Trump to 'knock off the secrecy and said people have "a basic right to know whether the president pays his fair share".

As tension runs high for a potential missile test from North Korea, President Trump is in Florida.
