Donald Trump lashed out at Joe Biden for raising more money for his election campaign than the president has.
The two candidates met in Nashville, Tennessee for the third and final presidential debate on Thursday.
Trump argued that he could ‘raise so much more money’ than Biden, even though Biden has been rocketing past him in fundraising for the election.
‘I could blow away your records like you wouldn’t believe,’ Trump said. ‘We don’t need money. We have plenty of money.’
Trump – who previously worked as a Manhattan property developer, and boasts of his knowledge of the stock market – added that because he was in such an influential position of power, he could call anyone he wanted to gain more money if necessary.
‘I could call the heads of Wall Street the heads of every company in America,’ Trump said. ‘I don’t want to do that because it puts me in a bad position.’
Biden has nearly doubled the amount of finances that Trump has saved up for his campaign, raising $383 million in September alone, with $432 million in reserves.
In comparison, Trump raised $247.8 million in the month of September.
Biden responded by bringing up Trump’s tax returns and asked why he had still not officially released them to the public.
‘I have released all of my tax returns,’ Biden said. ‘You have not released a single solitary year of your tax returns. What are you hiding?’

Biden continued to hit Trump on his income, bringing up how he was making money off of other countries.
‘The foreign countries are paying you a lot,’ Biden said. ‘Russia’s paying you a lot. China’s paying you a lot. What’s going on here? Release your tax returns or stop talking about corruption.’
This comes just after a report that shows that Trump has a bank account linked to China, according to the New York Times.
The debate was moderated by Kristin Welker, and the microphones, for the most part, were muted when each candidate spoke.
The election begins on Tuesday, November 3.
