A new ad from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign targets President Trump over details about his tax payments reported by The New York Times on Sunday.
The ad, released on Twitter by the Biden campaign late Sunday evening just hours after the Times’s bombshell report was published, features the faces of a number of U.S. taxpayers and their corresponding tax burdens, before comparing their payments to the $750 reportedly paid by Trump during his first year in office. It features no narration.
The ad is the Biden campaign’s first official comment on the story reported Sunday by the Times, which detailed the numerous financial loopholes pursued by the president to reduce his tax burden, including writing off some expenses such as his own hairstyling costs as business-related.
The president and the Trump Organization have both fiercely denied the story, which comes shortly before Trump and Biden’s first debate on Tuesday. At a press conference Sunday, Trump said the story was “totally fake news.”
