Donald Trump filled his Saturday schedule with golfing and tweeting. One of his tweets was directed at his political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
Trump told his Twitter followers that the economy will crash if Biden wins the 2020 election.
Trump started his tweet with a quote: “Biden to raise taxes by 3 Trillion Dollars.”
“Actually, it will be much more than that, and much of it on nonsense,” he added. “Markets and your 401k’s will CRASH. Jobs will disappear!”
“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!

Trump was quickly reminded that he has had the worst stock crash in U.S. history. Take a look at how people responded to his remarks:
You already crashed the economy, bud. https://t.co/N1jABkmjSA

You have raised the deficit to astronomical heights never seen before in American history. You are used to doing bankruptcies but America has never had to resort to that. Since the deficit is trillions someone will have to pay that bill. You said you'd be gone before it was due.

Under competent leadership, we would have saved trillions of dollars in the past few months. Democratic presidents have been bailing out inept Republican presidents for 30 years. Try as you might, you're goose is cooked.

Actually the stock market soared under Obama/Biden. They pulled us out of the Great Recession. Biden isn’t raising taxes on anyone who isn’t already ultra wealthy. Those are FACTS!

Propaganda – that's all you have – lies and propaganda.
The top 1% have to pay their taxes! You've been giving tax breaks to greedy corporations and the super rich while everybody else has been getting screwed.
We should all know by now, you can't manage the economy! 👇 pic.twitter.com/SrMfCWeyqm

Biden will only raise taxes on the extremely wealthy. And Obama/Biden not only got us out of the Great Recession, but the market soared under them.

I smell your fear. It is delightful.

When @BarackObama was president (and Biden was VP) the stock market hit historic levels, unemployment was low, and America prospered.
With Trump, we have the worst GDP numbers ever, and we have had the 3 worst unemployment rates since the Great Depression.

After Herbert Hoover, it took FDR to recover from the Great Depression. After George W. Bush, it took Barack Obama to recover from the 2008 Great Recession. And it will take Joe Biden to bring us back from the economic and health disaster that Donald Trump allowed. #GOPTaxScam
