Democratic presidential candidate Joseph Biden accused the incumbent head of state Donald Trump of pursuing an unfair tax policy.
In his opinion, Trump, during the economic crisis, created conditions that were beneficial primarily for owners of large estates.
Everyone knows that Donald Trump is rich. And how rich are the people who want to compete with him for the presidency? Forbes has calculated the financial condition of the participants of the presidential race-2020.
In some cases, the calculation results were unexpected. Bernie Sanders is a millionaire. So is “Joe of the middle class” Biden. Elizabeth Warren with a fortune of $ 12 million richer than both of them combined. However, she is far from John Delaney with $200 million – he is twice richer than all Democrat candidates except financial magnate Tom Steyer. The latter’s fortune is estimated at $1.6 billion.
“100 richest Americans increased their fortunes by more than $300 billion during the COVID-19 period. Now, in the midst of a pandemic and economic crisis, Donald Trump wants to give them tax breaks of $29 billion. Realize that! – he wrote on Twitter on Thursday, September 17.
Biden also said he would not raise taxes for the middle class if he won the presidential election.
“If you have an annual income of less than $400,000, you won’t pay a cent more. Superrich people and large corporations will finally pay a fair share, and we will send those funds to working families. We will reward the work, not the wealth,” he stressed.
Earlier Trump accused Biden of destroying the American middle class and worsening the environment. He stressed that his administration “proves every day” that it can improve the environment while creating millions of new well-paid jobs.
