Biden, Harris, and Spouses Release Tax Returns Ahead of Presidential Debate

The first Presidential Debate on Tuesday night has been a hot topic of conversation for the last few weeks, and with the recent bombshell announcement regarding Donald Trump’s taxes, the Biden Campaign has decided to throw a little extra shade at Team Trump before the candidates take the stage.

Joe and Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and her husband, Douglas Emhoff, all released their personal taxes on Tuesday. The full financial statements are available on Joe Biden‘s campaign website for anyone to scrutinize. Biden has posted 22 years of his taxes, with Harris and Emhoff sharing their 2019 state and federal returns.

Every presidential candidate since Richard Nixon has released their taxes, but Trump continues to be the glaring exception, making the same excuses for not releasing them as he did in 2016. While taxes aren’t on the official list of topics provided by moderator Chris Wallace, it’s not out of the realm of expectation that Biden might just make a mention of them when the opportunity arises.

Twitter was quick to pick up on the announcement, especially with Trump’s own tax returns still dominating the trending topics.

 

Team Trump, clearly worried about the debate, started tweeting misinformation as a “joke” and making outrageous claims that their own demands weren’t met.

 

Expectations for a Biden debate win are so high, Team Trump is already pre-emptively trying to cancel the remaining two scheduled debates. Mark Hamill had the best advice for dealing with whatever might happen on the debate stage.
