The tax return dilemma is circulating around the news since the presidential elections, when the contenders of the current head of office have demanded their release; questioning the transparency of the real estate mogul.
The idea is coming back to live after a law professor, in January after the inauguration, has tweeted an initiative of a popular march to pressure the watchdog agencies to force the head of nation to come clear with his tax reports.
Although, the constitution does not stipulate presidents to release their tax returns, most of them have done so voluntarily to prove their genuine and ethical conduct.
Woman and taxes
What many consider the most vocal demonstrations in the recent history of the United States, the woman’s march took place after the presidential inaugural procedure, should be an example topped by the Tax-march tomorrow.
A law professor specializing in business at Vermont Law School has commented on the popular demand saying: “I do not care about his taxes. I care about transparency and conflict of interest. I think it’s important for us, we the people, to express First Amendment rights and say we want to see them”.
Loss of public trust?
The public is up roaring at the governmental agencies that have been ignoring this nationwide demand and various political movements, including bipartisan politicians, are participating in the large scale demonstrations on Saturday to express their mistrust and disbelief in the Trump administration.
The president has been drifting away since his successful electoral campaign, deviating away from answering any questions or inquiry concerning the doubts around his tax portfolio.
The Tax-March is a reflection of the public discontent on the American streets, not only because of the tax returns.
Media, analysts, experts and civil societies have been hit hard and angered by several policies taken by the new head of Oval Office.
The magnitude of impact that will be resulted from this event tomorrow could be the mark of an historical moment.
