As President Donald Trump continues to spend his Easter weekend in Palm Beach, anti-Trump protesters are planning a march today from downtown West Palm Beach to Mar-a-Lago.

LIVE UPDATES: Trump in Palm Beach Saturday

One organizer said 2,000 people are expected at the march, which begins at noon in front of the Trump Plaza at 525 South Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. Trump has not owned the buildings for more than 20 years, but they still bear his name. The demonstrators plan to march more than 3 miles to Mar-a-Lago to demand the president release his tax returns.

A march along the same route in February drew an estimated 3,000 demonstrators. And about 5,000 people showed up for an anti-Trump demonstration in West Palm Beach the day after Trump’s inauguration.

Trump is at Mar-a-Lago for the seventh visit of his presidency. He has no public events scheduled today.
