Activists to use Tax Day to tell Trump: Show us your returns

"The President's refusal to release his tax returns is bad in several ways", Schumer responded.

"We're marching on Washington, D.C., and around the country to ask Donald Trump: WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?" the organizers say on their website.

US President Donald Trump has so far failed to deliver on his campaign promise to press Beijing to change the trade imbalance with China, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Tuesday.

"I'm just a law professor who sent out a tweet", said Taub, who teaches at Vermont Law School.

Surveys released in the final months of the presidential campaign similarly found public interest in Trump's returns, including a September 7 Fox News poll in which 60 percent of respondents who said "yes" when asked: "Do you think Donald Trump is hiding something in his tax returns?" "When you clean up the swamp, it's not keeping things secret and it applies to yourself".

Trump has said he wants to focus on after a health care bill's failure to pass last month.

Trump broke with a four-decade-old tradition of presidential candidates releasing their returns to the American public.

The animated song breaks down what Trump's estimated $900 Million tax dodge could have paid for.

There is no legal obligation for a president to release his tax returns, and like any other citizen, they can opt to keep them private.

"Progressives support an amply funded government sector, which means we must pay a lot of attention to tax policy", said Jared Bernstein, a former top economic adviser to former Vice President Joe Biden.

The New York Democrat told reporters on a conference call that potential conflicts of interest "should be made clear so hopefully he can clean them up".

In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Trump said he told Chinese President Xi Jinping "that a trade deal with the US will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!"

"I think the view of most, if not all, in my caucus is very, very dubious of the kind of large-scale military action we saw in Iraq, and dubious of military action generally", Schumer added".

Under the yet-to-be-proposed legislation, any Trump Ferry Point LLC officers who share the corporation's name would have to disclose their personal income taxes, Johnson's spokesman said.

"I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the USA will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!"

"I'm all about 'follow the money, '" Taub said.
