The ad will run in Wisconsin through the Democratic National Convention, which originally was slated to be held in Milwaukee before the pandemic prompted organizers to drastically scale down the event, make most speeches virtual and take Biden off the road.
The ad includes footage of Biden telling somebody who said they benefited from President Trump’s tax cuts, “If you elect me, your taxes are gonna be raised, not cut.”
Trump’s campaign claims what Biden really means is that he’ll be raising taxes on middle class families, small businesses and seniors.
Biden has denied he will do so, promising that nobody making under $400,000 a year would see their taxes go up. Trump’s team disputes that and says Biden’s pledge to restore the individual mandate for health coverage is effectively a tax.
