Trump slams Sanders over tax returns

United States President Donald Trump criticized presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for his tax returns, stating he should have paid his taxes at a rate before the current administration's tax cuts.

"Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income. He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else - and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!" Trump said on Twitter.

According to a recent poll, only 18% of US voters said they paid less in federal taxes for 2018. Trump's tax reform law has been accused of being beneficial to corporations and the wealthy, while neglecting the middle and working class. Sanders and his wife reported they earned $566,000 in 2018.
