One of the few pages on the White House website which survived the Trump transition is the “We the People” page. On that page any American Citizen can start a petition.
Someone has started the following petition: “Immediately release Donald Trump’s full tax returns, with all information needed to verify emoluments clause compliance.”
According to the website, if the petition gets at least 100,000 signatures, those who signed will “Get an official update from the White House within 60 days”. After I signed the petition, it had 321,372 signatures so that goal has easily been reached.
But that’s not the point. We know that Trump is not going to take this seriously; he is going to blow it off and make some kind of BS statement and that will be the end of it. We can’t let that happen. We need millions, no, tens of millions of people to sign. Those kind of figures will attract national news and put real pressure on Trump and his allies in Congress.
So please talk to your friends ask them to sign. Put put an invitation to sign on your Facebook page; advertise it on Twitter, and do anything you can to get all concerned people to join us in signing this petition.

After you sign, be sure to “Check your inbox for an email from us and click on the link to verify your signature.”
While you are on the site you might also want to sign another petition: “Divest or put in a blind trust all of the President’s business and financial assets”. It currently has 96,500 signatures.
