Who's behind rallies seeking tax returns
Thousands of sign-waving, chanting protesters marched through streets across America demanding that President Donald Trump release his tax returns so the public can examine his business ties and determine whether he has links to foreign powers.
ALLEN: After spending the morning at his golf club, the president's motorcade took a circuitous route back to Mar-a-Lago, one that seemed aimed at avoiding protesters.
The protesters gathered at a rally at Bryant Park, near the New York City Public Library.
Trump was the first major-party nominee in more than 40 years not to release his tax returns and he reneged on a campaign commitment to release them.
And though he and his surrogates have said often that he would release them when the audits were complete, there's no way to independently verify that the audits of his returns from years past are still ongoing.
Many people in the rallies were seen holding signs which read "We do care" and "Release your taxes", sending Trump a message. Trump has said that Americans "don't care at all" about his tax returns, but polls - including an ABC News/Washington Post story from January - show that 74% of Americans say he should release them.
The marches coincide with the traditional April 15 deadline for USA federal tax returns, though the filing date was pushed back two days this year.
The demonstrations, organised by a loose coalition of labour and left-leaning groups with various economic agendas, are meant to focus on Trump's refusal to disclose his tax-paying history, something his predecessors in the White House have done for more than 40 years.

CHICAGO (AP) - President Donald Trump says "someone should look into who paid" for the rallies around the country Saturday that urged him to release his tax returns.
The march was not entirely peaceful as at least 21 people were arrested in California after Trump's supporters and opponents clashed at a march in Berkeley.
But 71-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong.
Joe Dinkin, spokesman for the Working Families Party, one of the groups organizing the marches, said investigations into the Trump campaign's alleged connections to Russian Federation underscore the need to disclose his returns.
"We are taking the gloves off to say knock off the secrecy Mr President", said Senator Ron Wyden of OR, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee.
The White House did confirm information in a partial 2005 federal tax return that was leaked last month.
"I'm wondering if you'll take the initiative to have him release those returns so we can see what kinds of connections he has with different countries around the world", one attendee asked.
Protesters say Americans deserve to know about Trump's potential conflicts of interest.
