During an interview with “Fox and Friend” on Monday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told Democrats to tell people to stop all the protesting that flooded the streets in America during the weekend.
“Six months after Donald Trump won 306 electoral votes, you have people still trying to make it go away,” Conway said of the protesters demanding the president release his taxes.
Several economic justice groups organized The Tax Protest in an effort to get protesters out in over 200 cities across the country.
“I would love to hear the new DNC chairman, Tom Perez, Bernie Sanders, the Democratic senator from Vermont, who are going out on the road starting today, and I would love to hear Hillary Clinton, who lost to Donald Trump handily,” Conway continued. “I would love to hear them come forward as leaders of the Democratic Party and tell the people to stop. They have a right to express their First Amendment beliefs but at the same time, violence is not going to get us anywhere.”
Trump, in return, attacked the protesters on Twitter claiming that he didn’t need to release his tax returns to win the election.
“We need to see Trump’s tax returns as a matter of transparency. If we’re going into a tax reform debate, we need to know if what Trump wants to do is going to benefit himself, since he tends to do things that help him and not necessarily others,” said Wes Shockley, an organizer for the New York City march.
A new poll taken by the Global Strategy Group, shows that 80% of Americans want Trump to release his tax’s.
