Donald Trump is the first Presidential office holder to refuse to release his tax returns to the public, since it became the expected standard over the past half a century.

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

"Is it time to say once and for all the president is never going to release his tax returns?"

"As far as I'm aware, the president said he's still under audit", Cotton said to jeers.

The White House did confirm information in a partial 2005 federal tax return that was leaked last month.

Tuesday is the deadline for taxpayers to file returns.

Many people in the rallies were seen holding signs which read "We do care" and "Release your taxes", sending Trump a message. She and a friend rode a bus from New Jersey to New York City to take part in protests.

Violence erupted at one of those rallies, and many people were arrested in Berkeley, Calif., where groups that support and oppose the president clashed.

"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 Trump tax marches were launched by a single tweet, organisers said.

"You don't know which way the country goes", said Arlin next to her 89-year-old husband who fled Czechoslovakia during World War II.

Registered nurse Pam Craig of Greensboro says Trump's returns may show he has paid little or nothing to run the government he now heads.

One of Trump's sharpest critics in the House spoke to protesters at the U.S. Capitol just before they set off on a march to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, of California, said there's nothing to prevent Trump from releasing his income taxes and that "the simple truth is he's got a lot to hide". A poll taken in January, the results of which we have no reason to doubt still hold true, found that three of every four Americans - including a majority of Republicans - think Trump should release his tax returns.

Protesters and political rivals have said he should make a fuller disclosure to remove any inkling of potential conflicts of interest between his business interests and his political decisions.

And making the audits automatic may have been meant to bolster public confidence that the IRS will audit presidents of both parties and not let it become something the agency does at its discretion, according to tax lawyer Steven Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.
