Protesters demand Trump’s tax returns in Soros-funded “Tax Marches”

In an attempt to pressure President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, protesters across the country held demonstrations on Saturday as the rest of the country anticipated its annual tax deadline, which falls on April 18 this year, instead of the usual April 15 deadline.

Organizers of “Tax March” have staged events to take place in more than 150 cities, including New York, Washington and Los Angeles, as well as cities in Europe, Japan and New Zealand.

According to a report in Reuters, the demonstrations have been “organized by a loose coalition of labor and left-leaning groups with various economic agendas” demanding that President Trump disclose his tax-paying history.

“When we check in with our members, this is something they care about deeply,” according to Ben Wikler, Washington director of MoveOn.org, a progressive political group which is funded by leftist billionaire George Soros.

Unlike most presidential candidates in the past, President Trump has not released his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit by the Internal Revenue Service.

Critics claim he must be hiding something or hasn’t paid his “fair share” of taxes.

Organizers said that the Trump tax marches were inspired by a single tweet, which was posted by comedy writer Frank Lesser the day after the Women’s March, saying, “Trump claims no one cares about his taxes. The next mass protest should be on Tax Day to prove him wrong.” That tweet is reported to have been retweeted more than 21,000 times.

Joe Dinkin, spokesman for the Working Families Party, which is also planning the marches and was also founded and funded by Soros, said, “Without seeing his taxes we’ll never really know who he’s working for.”

Last month, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow released two pages of Trump’s 2005 return that were obtained by investigative reporter David Cay Johnston. According to the documents, Trump paid $38 million in taxes on more than $150 million in income. The New York Times, which claimed to have access to three pages of the President’s tax return, reported in October that Trump had declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 federal tax return.
