I can’t help but feel like Democrats are beating a dead horse here by still protesting for President Donald Trump’s tax returns to be released to the public.
First of all, wasn’t it enough that Rachel Maddow released Trump’s tax returns from 2005 in an attempt to “take him down”, only to see that he had paid in MILLIONS of taxes? Talk about embarrassing.
Now people are protesting outside of the Capitol, demanding more…Why? Releasing that information could cause trouble for his business because it could reveal private information regarding his business partners, which is not to be public knowledge.
CBS Austin Reports:
Hundreds of protesters met at the capitol steps on Saturday demanding that President Donald Trump release his tax returns. That’s why they gathered for the Tax March, which is part of a nation-wide demonstration.
They say this is all about transparency.
On the campaign trail, Trump promised to release his tax returns if he was elected president, but since taking office, he has said that his supporters don’t care whether or not they are released.
According to a study done by the Pew Research Center in January, 6 in 10 Americans believe Trump has a responsibility to release his tax returns.
53 percent of Republicans polled said they don’t think Trump needs to release his tax returns compared with 17 percent of Democrats who share the same opinion.
One of the march organizers, Jonathan Park, says people want to see the tax returns so they can learn more about his business interests and international ties.
“There’s so many different forms out there that are still being kept secret that would allow us to know who his business connections are, who he’s done business with, how much money he’s actually making with them, and what deals are still in the works that could be allowing him to put his personal interests before the interests of the country”, stated Park.
Just let it go? Let Trump do his job and stop crying about the small petty things.
