Democratic lawmakers used Tax Day on Tuesday to double down on calls for President Trump to release his tax returns.

Lawmakers, as well as protesters, have been calling on Trump to release his returns throughout his campaign and his term, as every other major presidential nominee has for nearly 40 years. On Saturday, tens of thousands turned out to "tax marches" across the U.S. to demand the release of Trump's returns.

Since his inauguration, the White House has repeatedly said that Trump does not intend to release his tax returns
