The Quinnipiac University national poll has consistently found support for Trump releasing his tax returns at about 67 percent since February.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) faced a rowdy town hall on Monday, eliciting boos as he attempted to defend President Donald Trump's refusal to release his tax returns.

Toting handmade signs, marchers shouted their discontent regarding the current administration's transparency and potential conflicts of interest due to Trump's worldwide business ties.

The Tax March in NY "exceeded expectations", in both number of participants and in the hostile reaction from the president on Twitter, a rally organizer told Metro.

The Washington, D.C., march began with a rally at the U.S. Capitol, where Sen.

Thousands of people took part in the rallies that Trump called "small", including a march to his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida, where the president usually stays for the weekend. Thirty-foot inflatable chickens will also go up at the marches in New York City and San Francisco, according to Kevin Donohoe, a Tax March organizer.

"This year, Americans will work the longest-46 days-to pay federal, state, and local individual income taxes", the report states.

"The only way we can know what kind of business ties our president has with businesses all over the world is by looking at his tax returns".
