Rob Wilcox of Eden Prairie also called for transparency. The biggest events were probably in NY and Los Angeles, each drawing about 5,000.

In San Diego, marchers appeared ready to continue being vocal about the tax return issue. "I hope Republicans see it".

Activists organized the mass protest, named "Tax March" in honor of Tax Day, to demand the White House to release the president's tax returns.

In West Palm Beach, some of those protesting said Trump's election as president had mobilized them to become much more politically active than ever before. He won't release his taxes.

Berkeley police say 13 people have been arrested after violence that included fistfights broke out Saturday between groups of supporters and detractors of President Donald Trump holding rallies in downtown Berkeley.

One of the largest rallies took place in Washington, D.C., where protesters gathered in front of the Capitol before marching along Pennsylvania Avenue.

Later, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) insisted that the president is breaking a precedent - Trump is the only president since Richard Nixon to refuse to release his tax returns - because he believes he is above the law. "Another motivation for coming out is that it seems to get to him", said Wallas, 31, of Angelino Heights.

Protesters say Americans deserve to know about Trump's potential conflicts of interest.

Trump was the first major-party nominee in more than 40 years not to release his tax returns, saying it was because he was under audit. "We march to bring awareness. We demand that the president release his returns as he has repeatedly promised but failed to do".

Trump may have seen some of the protesters Saturday as he went by vehicle from Mar-a-Lago to his golf club in West Palm Beach. "We need transparency and strong safeguards against corruption to ensure that the president, administration officials and Congress are free from wrongdoing and conflicts of interest".

Carroll said he worries that Trump's financial ties might compromise American interests, a common theme in the crowd on Saturday.
