7:18 am
show any and every bit of information about ourselves and it showed our integrity and our commitment."every president and presidential nominee has made their tax returns public for the past 40 years...but president trump has failed to do so ..despite saying he would following an audit during the 2016 elections. president trump: "so the answer is i'll release. hopefully before the election i'll release and i'd like to release."and again following the release of hillary clintion's email scandal.. president trump: "i will release my taxes return, against my lawyers wishes, once she releases her 30- thousand e-mails that have been deleted."trump has said americans "don't care at all" about his tax returns... but polls show nearly 75 percent of americans believe he should release them.rep. maxine waters / -d- ca: "we march today because while donald trump thinks he is distracting us we came to hold number 45

( marty ) meanwhile, thousands showed up in san francisco to march for the same reason. the protest at city hall was led by california democrats including congresswoman nancy pelosi. kron 4's hermela aregawi was there and has the latest. the message was clear..the people that attended the rally tell me they want to see the returns..because they believe the returns will show that president trump has conflicts of interests.. especially where russia is involved.rep. nancy pelosi/d/california: donald trump must release his tax returns!congresswoman nancy pelosi was the keynote speaker at the rally.joined by supervisor jane kimand san francisco native and author of the making of donald trump david k johnston.david cay johnson/author, the making of donald trumpdonald, russian bribes are not tax deductible thousands showed up with hand made signs.and one message. jessica redford/indivisible sf: we're here today to demand that trump show his tax returns. we want to know whether he has any conflict of interest or if there's anything else in his financial history that would basically disqualify him for roll of president.anca mosoiu/wants trump tax returns released: whether he's getting money from russia or has loans out in various countries where america has interest. what's
7:20 am
happening now is there is a division between people that can get away with stuff and the rest of us. its just not right.allyson west/indvisible lake merritt: i feel that somebody who leads our country should be honest with the people that he or she should be serving and i'd be willing to share my tax returns so i'm not sure why he would not be willing to share his tax returns.barbara west/wants trump tax returns released: this is actually the most improtant thing we can do in terms of getting him out is to try to get him to show his taxes, get the the fbi to subpoena his taxespolls show more than half of americans want to see the president's tax returns.and more than a million people have signed a white house petition asking for them.but some people are skeptical they'll ever see the light of daymike wardynski/ i don't think these marches are enough for him to do that. but i think if you know hopefully we get enough dirt on him where he'll be forced to do it. (hermela aregawi)democrats are hoping the fbi subpoenas the returns as part of the intelligence committes investigation into russia's involvement in the elections. but it's unclear how likely that is to happen.reporting live in san francisco, hermela aregawi, kron 4 news.

yet another cliff collapsed.... neighbors say they understand the erosion but they don't think the city is doing enough to slow the process. kron four's lydia pantazes reports neighbors dont think the city is doing enough to slow erosion. it's an eerie reminder of the eroding coastline in pacifica...."i noticed the caution tape and i immediately came over and took a look."a reminder that makes gwen urie who lives just across from the area... a little nervous."this has obviously been kind of a long slow process but to see the pathway go down was a little scary."neighbors say the cliff collapsed at around 1pm on saturday.... people we spoke with say there was at least four feet of coastline in front of this bench that is now gone. erin long-scott "there is a little cringe, you know, we've been, when we came home and saw how bad it is we were just talk my boyfriend and i how depressed it makes us."the cliff collapsed is in the same area where the city bought and removed 12-homes... this is the scene from 1998 when 30-feet of cliff fell
7:32 am
away from the side of those homes...as a result the homes were removed and a trail was put in their place.two homes still remain... but those homes have also been bought by the city and are vacant."so you can see down here the big boulders are actually an engineered revetment wall but they have slid out of place as the top of the bluff has eroded."but neighbors say the revetments wall is not being maintained...."they said that they would maintain the tip rap to bring it back up and we've noticed all the rip rap, instead of it being against the wall of the cliff edge is now out and tumbled in, so there's no protection between the ocean and the cliff edge." for people like gwen urich... who is looking at selling... the collapse couldn't come at a worse time."to finally make the decision to sell and then to have this happen is pretty scary so for me it's a scary thing financially to think about how that might affect the value of my house."

(other woman) my skin doesn't mean anything. i'm an american. i'm an american. (woman) but girl, when your family starts to get affected by it then, what? (other woman) my family came from a communist country, and my parents are very strong trump supporters and they do not want our country to become a communist country and they see us going down that slippery slope."nats- boom in and around civic center park, protestors threw m-80's into the crowd. we were forced to take cover several times. nats- "fáák." we spoke with this trump supporter who wandered into the anti-trump crowd...sot- "those are the fascists. they call me a fascist -- i ain't no racist. i ain't no racist, i ain't no fascist. i think everyone here should have a speech, but i don't think any of us should be touching each other." just minutes later... a fight broke out... and, the same man who denounced violence walked away with a bloody face.sot- "yeah, a rock hit me in the face -- it was cool. this is what we came here for. get out of here now."
