Another topic sure to be brought up tonight: Trump’s tax returns, some of which were obtained by the New York Times.
The Times reported Sunday that Trump paid only $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, the year he won the presidency.

In a clear attempt to criticize Trump for refusing to release his tax returns, Biden and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris released their 2019 returns earlier today.
The returns showed that Biden paid nearly $300,000 in federal income taxes last year. It seems very likely Biden will use the release of his tax returns today to attack Trump for lack of transparency with the American people.
Democratic lawmakers, including House speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, have also argued Trump’s large debt obligations could represent a national security risk.
Pelosi and Schumer have called on Trump to reveal to whom he owes money because they say those parties may have leverage over the US president.
