Trump responds to tax returns pressure
According to Rapporteur Report From, Press TV, Link, Ever since he started running, the real estate tycoon has refused to voluntarily release his tax returns like his predecessors.
On Sunday, he appeared on Twitter to respond to nationwide protests a day earlier, calling on him to release his tax returns.
The Republican president questioned the idea that he should release them, asserting that what matters is that he “easily” won the presidential race.
“I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?”
Trump suggested that rallies in Florida, New York and Washington, among other US cities, were an extension of the battle for an election that is “over.”
He also averted attention to the funding of such rallies and their organizers.
“Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!”
Thousands of people took part in the rallies that Trump called “small,” including a march to his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida, where the president usually stays for the weekend.
A coalition of 69 organizations had sponsored the so-called "Tax March."
Trump has ignored calls to release his tax returns, arguing that he is under audit.
In the run-up to his victory, the issue was adopted by the campaign of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as means to attack Trump, but to no avail.
