Cotton booed for defending Trump on tax returns

Still, as NBC News reports, White House press secretary Sean Spicer cited an audit as the reason President Donald Trump's tax returns can not be made public.

Spicer, the White House press secretary, says Trump's tax returns are still under audit.

The last sitting president who did not release his full tax returns was Gerald Ford (although he did voluntarily release a tax summary, more than Trump has done), and that alone invited unsavory comparisons to the secretiveness of his predecessor, Richard Nixon.

Trump "has to file taxes by tomorrow like all of us", Cuban said ahead of Tax Day on Tuesday.

"I did what was nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!"

However, the president would also like you to know that he himself isn't happy.

Asked what she suspected was in them, Turner replied: "Maybe something to do with Russian Federation?"

While the Easter Bunny delivered treats Sunday morning, Trump delivered tweets in response to Saturday's Tax March.

Joe Dinkin, spokesman for the Working Families Party, one of the groups organizing the marches, said investigations into the Trump campaign's alleged connections to Russian Federation underscore the need to disclose his returns.

He argues that he can not release them because he is being audited.

‶We are ordinary Americans, community organizers, advocates, and people from all walks of life and all backgrounds joining together to raise our voices and send a bold message to this administration: "We care, and we will hold President Trump, his administration, and Congress accountable", the Tax March website states.

And Saturday's nationwide protests on Saturday, April 15 - typically tax day, although not this year - spurred Trump's presidential motorcade to avoid protesters in West Palm Beach, Florida. "The American people understood when they elected him in November". The refrain to "take Trump seriously, but not literally", is by now a cliché, and one whose usefulness is belied by Trump's tendency to pursue very literal interpretations of his campaign promises. His support for Trump's refusal to release the returns led an exasperated attendee at his February 22 town hall to say, "The former president showed us his birth certificate!"

'Someone should look into who paid for the small organised rallies yesterday.

While U.S. presidents are not required to release their tax returns, almost all U.S. presidents had voluntarily released them since 1970s. He claims ongoing Internal Revenue Service audits prevent him from releasing them, despite this having no bearing on his capacity to make them public.
