Trump Announces Fake Biden Tax Conspiracy During Weekend Meltdown

President Donald Trump is continuing to desperately try and pull out all the stops in his effort to win re-election. This Saturday afternoon, Trump self-confidently proclaimed on Twitter that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden “just agreed with the Radical Left Democrats to raise Taxes by Three Trillion Dollars” — but it’s unclear what precisely Trump is talking about, even though he added that “everyone” will supposedly have to pay up under Biden’s tax plan. In reality, within the last few months alone, Biden pledged not to raise taxes on Americans earning less than $400,000 a year.

Trump tweeted:

Sleepy Joe Biden just agreed with the Radical Left Democrats to raise Taxes by Three Trillion Dollars. Everyone will pay – Will kill your Stocks, 401k’s, and the ECONOMY. BIG CRASH! #MAGA’

Again — it’s unclear what Trump is talking about, although he’s made a similar claim before. Back on August 1, he tweeted:

‘”Biden to raise taxes by 3 Trillion Dollars.” Actually, it will be much more than that, and much of it on nonsense. Markets and your 401k’s will CRASH. Jobs will disappear!’

There wasn’t any apparent evidence for Trump’s claims that Biden would sink the economy then, either. In fact, Forbes reported in March, in reference to Biden’s proposals, that “nearly all the tax increases would be paid by the highest-income households, according to a new analysis by the Tax Policy Center.”

Trump has gotten basic tenets of Biden’s policy wrong in the past. He has claimed, for instance, that Biden wants to defund the police, which is simply the exact opposite of what Biden has actually said.  It’s not ambiguous or questionable — just this past Wednesday, Biden said: “I don’t want to defund police. I want to get police more money in order to deal with the things they badly need.” How much more direct can he get?
