New Delhi [India], Apr 16 (ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked the recent calls demanding the release of his individual tax returns, saying it should be investigated that who "paid for" the marches held nationwide. Trump took to his Twitter to say, "Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!" <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday.

In another tweet he wrote, "I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!
