(NBC News) — President Trump’s taxes and his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic are expected to be a key focus in tonight’s presidential debate.
“I’m prepared to go out and make my case as to why I think he’s failed,” says Trump’s Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
According to an in-depth report from the New York Times, that includes failed businesses, a decade of zero taxes, and years of mounting debt, a stark contrast to the successful businessman President Trump has claimed to be.
Others say the issue goes beyond public perception.
“It’s a national security issue, you could potentially have a sitting President who owes hundreds of millions of dollars, the American people are going to want to know who he owes,” says NBC News business correspondent Stephanie Ruhle.
Watch the presidential debate tonight on NBC4 at 9 p.m., right after the premiere of the “Weakest Link” at 8 p.m.
