Thousands in NYC call for president to release tax returns

"We need a president who works for all Americans - and a tax system that does, too", said the organizers of the "Tax March" demonstrations on its website. Also Saturday, the Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a lawsuit against the IRS for failing to release the president's tax returns in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. "Release your tax returns and commit to a fair tax system for the American people".

Trump's tweets reveal the ramblings of an unhealthy man who will always put his fragile ego ahead of leading the country.

This year, Tuesday April 18 is the deadline because of April 15 falling on a Saturday and Monday's Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia.

Tens of thousands of people marched through Manhattan and several other United States cities on Saturday to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns and to dispute his claim that the public doesn't care about the issue. Though nearly all news media discussed North Korea's failed missile launch, Trump was instead complaining about the Tax Day marches.

"When we check in with our members, this is something they care about deeply", said Ben Wikler, Washington director of MoveOn.org, a progressive political group.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger 'determined to put things right' after Palace loss
The Gunners looked void of ideas after that, and started sagging even more when Yohan Cabaye doubled the lead after the break. Wenger told the club's official website : "I'm deeply disappointed because the performance we produced was not good enough".

But 71-year-old Ilene Singh said he's wrong. Almost 150 cities across the nation took part in the Tax March.

"Until he does, we'll never know what he's hiding or who his policies are created to benefit, ' said organizers of the 'Tax March" demonstrations on its website. I've always said everything will take care of itself.

Police in riot gear confiscated sticks, knives and fireworks that were being hurled in the melee, after failed efforts to separate the events with makeshift fencing.

The figure - seen by some as the unofficial mascot for the protest - apparently meant to suggest that the Republican president was afraid, or chicken, to publish his tax records.

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.

Turkey's pro-Kurdish opposition says referendum outcome unclear until appeal finalised
It sets a limit of two five-year terms for presidents and also allows the president to remain at the helm of a political party. In another Istanbul neighborhood, a "yes" voter expressed full support of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan .

"If he thinks he can get away with playing king, he's got another thought coming", Waters said.

"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".

The fact that Trump continues refusing to release his returns is raising the alarms about possible conflicts of interests, advocates claim.

Still, the White House has not indicated Trump has any intentions of releasing his returns. "He's doing it because it's good for him.' So, for his own good, he ought to make them public".

Polls open in Turkey's historic referendum on reforms
I watched as queues of voters turned up to a polling station in Ankara where the voting process was quick and efficient. A one-man system is like that", said Istanbul resident Husnu Yahsi, 61, who said he was voting "no".
