The Republican National Convention Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, is facing harsh criticisms on social media after she claimed on social media that Donald Trump’s Presidential opponent, Joe Biden, intended to raise taxes on the large bulk of Americans ahead of the election.

McDaniel, who was one of the members of the President’s inner circle to become afflicted with the Coronavirus following his own diagnosis, took to Twitter on Saturday to state that Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee who is favored to win the election, plans to use his first day in office to raise taxes on a whopping 82% of Americans. However, the claim was swiftly criticized as others pointed out other things the former Vice-President has said.

Many quickly slammed McDaniel and called her a liar, as Biden has gone on the record to say that he isn’t going to raise taxes on anyone who makes less than $400,000 a year, meaning her math on the 82% was likely way off.

Another person pointed out that not only was McDaniel’s assertion wrong but also made note of different information that has come to light during Donald Trump's time in office, stating that it seemed more likely he was the one who Americans needed to be concerned about.

McDaniel’s claim comes as the election edges closer, with just over two weeks to go until election day, with polls often showing Biden in the lead.
