Easter is not on President Trump’s mind today.
While First Lady Melanie Trump made a surprise visit t0 Home Safe, a domestic violence Shelter in Palm Beach, FL Friday morning, it seems like President Donald Trump was contemplating on what his first few tweets would be about on that following Easter morning.
One thing is for sure, it most certainly was not about Easter bunnies, egg hunts and Easter baskets.
While Trump did greet the world with a “Happy Easter to everyone!” tweet, in the history of getting to know Trump as not only our 45th President but also a public figure, I just had a hunch that that there was more to that joyful tweet.
Following his Easter greeting he tweeted another tweet about an hour later. This tweet was everything short of the Easter bunny.
and following that tweet, was another..
Apparently Trump had a little more on his mind than anything that was pertaining to Easter. Trump, suggesting that someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies that took place yesterday, is coming off a little indecisive as to whether or not he wants to talk about the election and how he won (as he did in his previous tweet) or if he should tell protestor organizers that the election is over.
Well… I did a little digging myself and I came across a little bit of information on who organized the ground breaking and memorable Tax Marches that took place in multiple states on yesterday.
The following individuals helped organize the event:
- Ana Chu– Serves as the Vice President for Income Security and Education
- Delvone Michael– Sr. Political Strategist for the National Working Families Party.
- Ezra Levin– Co-founder and Executive Director of the Indivisible Project. (A non profit working to empower grassroots advocates to resist the Trump Agenda through local, defensive congressional advocacy.
- Gwen Snyder– Community organizer from Philadelphia and lead organizer for Tax March Philly.
- Indivar Dutta-Gupta– Co-Executive Director at the Georgetown center on Poverty and Inequality.
- Jennifer Taub– Professor at Vermont Law School. She teaches courses in Contracts, Corporations, Securities regulation and White Collar Crime.
- Maura Quint– Works extensively with non-profits in diverse sectors including political action campaigns, international arts, and health and human services organizations.
- Nelini Stamp– National Membership Director for the Working Families Party.
In an attempt to demand President Trump’s tax returns, and a fairer tax system, more than 200 communities across the country participated.
6 communities in Arizona
2 communities in Arkansas
20 + communities in California
13 communities in Florida
3 communities in Georgia
5 communities in Iowa
8 Communities in Michigan
also 4 international marches including Germany, Japan, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, just to name a few.
Apparently only two of Trump’s tax returns have been revealed.
Trump stated that he was initially withholding the returns because he is under audit, which by the way, the IRS has neither confirmed nor denied that claim.
Trump later stated that he did not think that the American public cared about his returns since he had already won the election.
I hate to say it but I think Trump should reconsider that assumption. Although trump adamantly claims the the American people “don’t care”, polls show about 74% of Americans say he should release the records. If more than 200 communities nationwide (and let’s not forget the 4 international marches as well) took time out of their busy schedule to come out, voluntarily might I add, to demand tax return records from our 45th President of the United States, uh yea, the Americans do care.
As the Trump administration has claimed before, The president also suggested that the demonstrators were paid to march.
“We march to demand that the president release his returns, as he has repeatedly promised, but failed, to do,” the Tax March website reads. “We march because it is in the best interest of the American people to know what financial entanglements and conflicts of interest our leaders have.”
Yes, Donald Trump, the American public does care.
