Trump slams 'small' Tax March, suggests protesters were paid

A day after tens of thousands of people marched to demand President Trump release his tax returns, the president heaved allegations on Sunday that Tax March protesters were actually paid to hold rallies around the world.

"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?" tweeted Trump early Easter Sunday. "Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!"

According to Tax March organizers "Over 120K" people showed up to rallies "in 200 cities" across the globe in an attempt to call attention to President Trump's refusal to disclose his tax information.

Trump's own motorcade rerouted on Saturday afternoon in Florida to avoid large crowds of protesters gathering near his Mar-a-Lago resort, according to reports.

During the 2016 campaign Trump said he would release his tax returns once an audit of his finances was complete. Nearly 100 days in office and Trump has changed his tune -- now claiming he has no plans to release any tax information because "The only ones that care about my tax returns are the reporters."

Tax March organizers hoped Saturday's protest would be proof U.S. citizens do in fact care about the president's financial history and that the world-wide protests would push Trump to do what every president since President Nixon has done: release his taxes.

But with Trump's criticism of Saturday's protest it seems unlikely it will change the president's mind.

Trump's made it a habit to publicly criticize protests in opposition of his administration. Following the massive Women's March a day after Inauguration Day, Trump initially tweeted, "Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly."

Minutes later the president seemed to change his tune writing, "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."

Trump has also recently attacked individuals voicing health care reform concerns at Republican town halls. "The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!"
