Kamala of Trump taxes- 'I thought it said he paid $750,000 not $750' - News Today

Kamala Harris tore into Donald Trump's reported federal tax payments during her debate with Vice President Mike Pence Wednesday, claiming it's important to find out to whom the president owes money.'Joe Biden has been incredibly transparent, and certainly by contrast, the president has not appeared both in terms of health records, but also let's look at taxes,' the Democratic vice presidential candidate said as she segued the conversation from coronavirus to the president's taxes.'We now know because of great investigative journalism that Donald Trump paid $750 in taxes,' Harris continued during the only vice presidential debate Wednesday evening in Utah. 'When I first heard about it, I literally said, you mean $750,000? And it was like no, $750.'Pence stood up for his boss, claiming the president has paid millions in taxes and shifted the discussion to the economy in general – praising Trump for creating jobs both before being elected president when he was a businessman and after.'The American people, who have a president who is a businessman, job creator, who has paid tens of millions of dollars in taxes. Payroll taxes, property taxes,' the vice president said. 'He's created tens of thousands of American jobs.' He continued: 'The president said those public reports are not accurate, and the president has also released literally stacks of financial disclosures the American people can review, just as the law allows.''When President Trump and I took office, America had gone to the slowest economic recovery since the great depression. They tried to tax our way to a growing economy,' Pence said.Trump's tax returns – and specifically how much he pays to the Internal Revenue Service – has been the subject of much criticism as the president has refused to make the documents public since campaigning in 2015, even though the good faith practice has become customary for presidential candidates.The New York Times revealed just days before the first presidential debate last week that sources provided documents that show the president paid only $750 in federal taxes two years in a row.During the debate in Cleveland, Ohio against Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump insisted he paid millions in taxes – but did not clarify anything about the allotment for federal taxes.He said he would release the returns when an audit is completed
