Hundreds of protestors were marching to demand the release of Trump’s tax returns.

Protestors can be seen for miles in West Palm Beach, where Trump is spending the weekend—his seventh since becoming President. Each of Trump’s trips reportedly costs American taxpayers more than $3 million.
Trump has erroneously claimed that Americans “don’t care” about his tax returns. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are expected to march today to prove otherwise.
The Women’s March following Trump’s inauguration was the largest protest in American history and a direct response to Trump’s sexist statements and stances. If today’s crowds are even a fraction of that size, it will be exceedingly difficult for Trump to maintain that Americans really don’t care about what he is hiding in his tax returns.
