GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Marchers showed they aren't happy with President Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns. They took to the streets Saturday in Grants Pass to ask the president to show evidence of what he's paid to the government.

"We could understand what's going on," marcher Jan Jones said. "If there's a problem we can sort it out. If there's not a problem, we can stop worrying about it."

Other people have other reasons for wanting to see his taxes.

"I want to know if he's sending our children and military into harm's way he's actually participating in the payment," marcher Randall Williams said.

Between 200-300 people took part in the march to the Josephine County Courthouse, all who let their voices be heard.

"It shows me there are other people of a common interest," Williams said. "There are people who feel very deeply about this issue and it brings us together as a community."

President Trump is the first major party nominee to not release his tax returns in more 40 years. He said it was because he was under audit. He later said voters don't care.

But there were many people who cared and marched to let others know about it.

The march was organized by the group Rogue Indivisible.
