White House Throws Subtlest Of Shade At Donald Trump In Biden Tax Returns Statement

Two words set Twitter alight.

People think the White House just dinged ex-President Donald Trump with its statement about President Joe Biden’s tax returns.

On Monday, the White House made Biden’s tax returns public with a statement that read: “Today, the President released his 2020 federal income tax return, continuing an almost uninterrupted tradition.”

Many folks on Twitter thought the words “almost uninterrupted” were a dig at Trump, who broke with a decadeslong tradition by refusing to release his financial records during his presidency. Trump repeatedly claimed that he couldn’t make his tax returns public because he was being audited.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki also appeared to reference Trump’s reluctance to disclose the data when she said on Monday that the White House expects to “continue to release the president’s tax returns, as should be expected of all presidents.”
