13 arrested in Berkeley, Calif., during dueling Trump rallies

Thousands of people turned out for a march through midtown Manhattan on Saturday to demand that US President Donald Trump release his tax returns and to dispute his claim that the public does not care about the issue.

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

Demonstrators in dozens of US cities and towns, including Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Palm Beach, where Trump was spending Easter Weekend at his resort Mar-a-Lago, marched on Saturday to demand Trump release his tax returns.

Trump is the first president since Jimmy Carter to refuse to release his tax information.

Sandie Carpenter of Whitefish says this was a way for Montanans to voice their concerns about the president's decision to not release his returns.

Sue to the significance of April 15, what has bee tax day for many years, this protest was one of roughly 150 that were taking place nationwide.

This is despite the IRS insisting a presidential candidate is permitted to release tax documents even if they are being audited.

'Someone should look into who paid for the small organised rallies yesterday.

Protesters gathered at Civic Center Park and rallied together Saturday afternoon to ask for transparency and honesty from the president when it comes to his financial dealings. Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, of California, said there's nothing to prevent Trump from releasing his income taxes.

Sunday morning was a busy one for Trump on Twitter.

Shockley said the Tax March will hopefully provide momentum for rallies planned for other issues, such as the Science March called for 500 cities across the globe on April 22, and the People's Climate March on April 29. Trump's break with precedent has raised questions about possible conflicts of interest. Donald Trump can't fathom that a majority of the country believes he is corrupt and wants him removed from office. "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" he followed up at 9 a.m. Organizers for Tax March San Francisco discovered the chicken and re-dubbed it "Chicken Don" to poke fun at the President for being too afraid to release his tax returns.
