Thousands attended Tax Day rallies across the country on Saturday, including Atlanta, as protestors called on President Donald Trump to release his federal tax returns.

Rallies were also planned in 150 cities, including Washington, D.C., Chicago and West Palm Beach.

Organizers say they hope their marches will pressure the president to act.

In DC, protestors marched from the capitol to the Washington Monument with a rally featuring members of Congress.

In West Palm Beach, demonstrators participated in the “March-A-Lago” near the president’s Mar-A-Lago resort.
During the election, Trump said he would not release his taxes while they were under audit.

This week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the White House filed financial disclosure forms.
Every president since Richard Nixon has released his tax returns.
