- In a tweet, the first-term New York lawmaker pointed to the taxes reportedly paid by the president and former media mogul in 2016 and 2017 — $750 a year — as being less than she paid while working as a bartender in New York City prior to her election to office in 2018.
- “In 2016 & ‘17, I paid thousands of dollars a year in taxes *as a bartender.* Trump paid $750,” she tweeted. “He contributed less to funding our communities than waitresses & undocumented immigrants.
- “Last year Republicans blasted a firehose of hatred + vitriol my way because I treated myself to a $250 cut & lowlights on my birthday,” she tweeted. “Where’s the criticism of their idol spending $70k on hairstyling? Oh, it’s nowhere because they’re spineless, misogynistic hypocrites? Got it.”
