The organisers of "Tax March" wanted to call attention to Trump's refusal to disclose his tax returns, as his predecessors have done for over 40 years.
During Trump's presidential campaign, he kept postponing the release of his tax returns with the excuse that they were under audit.
The election is long over and the debate over Trump's taxes has raged for far too long, and yet on Tax Day Saturday, April 15, thousands took to the streets across the country to demand that President Trump at long last release his tax returns. In South Florida, activists marched to Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, where the president is staying this weekend. And a petition demanding that Trump release his returns has garnered more than 1 million signatures.
Not surprisingly, President Trump did not care for the protests that occurred nationwide on National Tax Day, urging him to release his tax returns.
"In my view Mr. Trump has a responsibility to share his tax returns to give transparency to the American public", Rosenthal said. Spicer shot this down, saying Trump is under "the same audit that existed, so nothing has changed". Trump said on Twitter.

We probably haven't defended either goal of well as we should have done. I thought we played well today. "From that led some better football".
Protest organizers say Americans deserve to know about Trump's business ties and potential conflicts of interest.
The Washington, D.C., march began Saturday with a rally at the U.S. Capitol, where Democratic lawmakers called on Trump to stop the secrecy.
"If he's got nothing to hide, he should release his tax returns", said protester Liz Turner, 31.
For decades, U.S. presidents and presidential candidates have released their tax returns voluntarily - there is no legal requirement to do so.
A coalition of 69 organizations had sponsored the so-called "Tax March". Being under audit does not prohibit tax returns from being released.
The protests were timed to coincide with the traditional April 15 deadline for USA tax filings (though this year the deadline falls on April 18).
The Tax March rallies were organised through social media by a professor at Vermont Law School, Jennifer Taub, and comedian Frank Lesser.
