Tax March - Lexington

Lexington

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump told the American people he would release his tax retruns and come clean about his buisness dealings as presidential candidates and presidents have done for decades.  Despite intense public pressure, President Donald Trump has not yet done so. In refusing to release these tax returns, he is able to hide his business dealings, financial ties, and conflicts of interest.

Within days of his inauguration, the White House petition calling on Trump to release his tax returns garnered the most signatures on a White House petition, ever.  The Tru administration's response?  "People don't care."

One April 15th, we're marching on Washington, D.C. and in communities across the country to show that we do care.  And that we're not going away.  Tens of thousands of Americans will send a clear message to Donald Trump: The president is accountable to the American people, and he must answer to us.
