Across the country, town hall meetings and protests continued Tuesday as President Donald Trump insisted, his taxes were simply a campaign issue while he was traveling to Wisconsin to focus on jobs.

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

Tuesday is tax day and questions continue over the President's still unreleased tax returns.

As a candidate and as president, Trump has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit by the Internal Revenue Service.

Trump has justified his refusal to publish tax returns by noting they are being audited.

"Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday".

Demonstrators participate in a march and rally to demand President Donald Trump release his tax returns, Saturday, April 15, 2017, in NY.

The demonstrations are taking place on the traditional April 15 Tax Day, the deadline for filing federal tax returns, although the IRS this year pushed back the deadline by three days.

Several thousand boisterous protesters are rallying in New York City to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns. Organizations around the country chose to use this Tax Day and turn it into a nationwide Rally.

Could North Korea Hit Japan with Sarin Nerve Gas Missiles?
"There is a possibility that North Korea already has a capability to put sarin on warheads to strike the ground", he said . North Korea relies mainly on domestic coal, but oil is used by the military as well as in transport and agriculture.

Organizers said the protests - dubbed the Tax March - were scheduled in almost 150 cities, and stemmed from the women's march that took place the day after Trump's inauguration.

Many people in the rallies were seen holding signs which read "We do care" and "Release your taxes", sending Trump a message.

The rallies were largely peaceful but in Berkeley, California, police arrested 13 people at unrelated gatherings in a park after fistfights broke out between pro- and anti-Trump factions.

Protesters and political rivals have said he should make a fuller disclosure to remove any inkling of potential conflicts of interest between his business interests and his political decisions.

"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.

The Trump tax marches were launched by a single tweet, organisers said.

"Thanks to Trump, I think that releasing your taxes when you run for president now has to be a law", New Yorker Marni Halasa, 51, told Reuters.

And making the audits automatic may have been meant to bolster public confidence that the IRS will audit presidents of both parties and not let it become something the agency does at its discretion, according to tax lawyer Steven Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.
