At a recent campaign event, former Vice President Biden got a little too honest with his audience when one attendee tepidly acknowledged that his/her economic prospects had indeed improved thanks to President Trump's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Biden informed them that that would not be the case under his administration. He promised that their taxes would actually go up.

"Guess what, if you elect me, your taxes are going to be raised, not cut," Biden said.

He's not lying. According to the Tax Policy Center's analysis, Biden's economic agenda would increase taxes, mostly on wealthier households, by $4 trillion over the next 10 years.

And he thought that was a winning campaign promise?

Nikki Haley, Trump's former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, summarized Biden's whole campaign as follows.

And with a message like that, President Trump isn't concerned at all about this re-election.

"He's going to raise taxes incredibly," Trump said. "He's going to raise taxes more than Bernie. And he's open about it."

"It's ridiculous," Trump added. "He'll destroy everything that's been built."

As bad as Biden's tax plan, it actually isn't quite as egregious as Bernie Sanders's plans to do with the economy. His agenda would increase taxes by $30 trillion over the next decade. The Wall Street Journal predicts it would be the largest tax increase since World War Two.

Trump identified the rest of the field's weaknesses in the above clip too. I highly recommend a watch.
