On Saturday, thousands are once again expected to march in cities across the U.S. But this time it’s not because of immigration policy or issues that affect women—it’s to demand the release of President Donald Trump’s tax returns.
The main marches—organized by a group of nonprofit leaders and members of the Working Families Party—will take place in Washington, D.C., and New York, with simultaneous demonstrations planned in cities such as San Francisco and Chicago, Des Moines, and Nashville. According to the Tax March’s website, there are nearly 200 planned marches in 45 states along with international marches in Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the U.K.
Trump has changed his stances on a variety of issues since the days of his 2016 campaign, from deeming China a currency manipulator to saying the Labor Department’s statistics are accurate. But one issue he hasn’t changed his position on is releasing his returns.
On the campaign trail, Trump said he’d make the documents available after an IRS audit has been completed. Many have criticized that response, noting that an audit does not prohibit him from releasing the returns. Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump’s top advisors, has vacillated in her response to the question, at times saying that he won’t make the records public, but then also echoing her bosses’ claims that the returns will be available after the audit is complete.
