#Donald Trump has been in the #White House for nearly three months, but millions of Americans are still voicing their displeasure and opposition over the results of the general election. Just one day after thousands of protesters took to the streets across the country demanding the release of the president's #Tax returns, Trump decided to lash out on Twitter..
Trump on Twitter
Not long after Donald Trump officially became a candidate for president close to two years ago, the mainstream media and the majority of the American people pushed for the release of his tax returns. Due to Trump's wealth and business dealings around the world, speculation grew about what potential conflict of interest would take place if he was elected as the next commander in chief. The former host of "The Apprentice" ducked the question, and continued to do so for the remainder of the 2016 presidential election. Trump cited a current audit with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for why he never made his taxes public, though an audit doesn't prevent an individual from releasing their returns. Fast forward to present day and Trump is currently dealing with a growing scandal of Russia interfering in the election, with questions being raised about their impact on his administration.
On Saturday, multiple protests took place as protesters took part in a nationwide "Tax March" event calling for the release of Trump's tax returns. In response, the president fired back during a pair of April 16 messages on Twitter.
I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 16, 2017
Taking to his Twitter account early Easter Sunday, Donald Trump was not pleased with the protests against him. "I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!," Trump tweeted out, before rhetorically asking, "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?"
Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 16, 2017
Not stopping there, Donald Trump sent a follow-up tweet and questioned whether or not the protesters were actually paid. "Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "The election is over!" Regardless of his frustration, the subject of Trump's tax returns appear like they will continue to be a hot topic for the foreseeable future.
While many in the public continue to push for the release of Donald Trump's tax returns, the president doesn't appear willing to make them public. As the backlash increases against the White House on a daily basis, it's not likely to slow down anytime soon.
