President Donald Trump descended into an early morning tweetstorm Sunday, blasting the nationwide protests demanding he releases his tax returns.
In a series of tweets, the erratic president launched an angry attack against organizers of Saturday’s Tax March. The nationwide protest urged Trump to release his tax returns, a presidential tradition he has declined to uphold.
The march came as Democratic lawmakers renewed their calls for the president to release his tax returns.
Over 100,000 protesters participated in Saturday’s Tax March protests across the US, according to official reports. The event was organized by a network of progressive grassroots organizations.
In a video released Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren questioned whether Trump was attempting to hide mob ties or unsavory foreign business connections.
“Who really calls the shots over the man who now sits in the White House?” Warren asked. “He could clear this up just like that if he would make his taxes public.”
Confronted repeatedly by his refusal to release his tax returns, Trump has claimed that he will release them when he is no longer under audit from the IRS, though there are no rules stipulating that he cannot release his tax returns while he is under audit.
Twitter users were quick to respond to Trump’s attacks:
