Kamala Harris gave a blunt refresher on President Donald Trump’s finances early on in the vice-presidential debate Wednesday night.
“It would be really good to know who the president of the United States — the commander-in-chief — owes money to,” Harris said, referring to The New York Times’ investigation into Trump’s taxes that found him in debt for hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, $139 million of which he’s on the hook for within five years.
“Because the American people have a right to know what is influencing the president’s decisions, and is he making those decisions on the best interests of the American people — of you — or self-interest.”
“Just so everyone is clear, when we say in debt, it means you owe money to somebody” Harris said.
She also took a dig at Trump for how little he paid in federal income taxes.
