Dem Rep Writes A Poem To Denounce Trump For Not Releasing Tax Returns

California Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell slammed President Donald Trump by using three lines and 17 non-rhyming syllables to blast the president’s decision not to release his tax returns on National Haiku Day Monday.

Swalwell, a vocal critic of Trump and member of the House Intelligence Committee, called on the president to release the documents through Japanese poetry.

Democrats have recently stepped up their call for the president to release his tax returns, with critics protesting across the country over Easter weekend, just ahead of tax day.

Trump has repeatedly said he won’t release his tax returns until he is no longer under audit by the Internal Revenue Service.

“The president is under audit, it’s a routine one, it continues, and I think the American public knows clearly where he stands, this was something he made very clear during the election cycle,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Monday. “We are under the same audit that existed, so nothing has changed.”
