According to the New York Times, President Donald Trump only paid $750 in income tax in 2016 and paid entirely nothing for 10 out of the 15 years the newspaper analyzed.

People on Twitter were angry at this news as they have been paying more income tax for years. Many spoke out about their experiences.

Here are just a few of the thousands of people who said they have paid more in income tax than $750 in a year — and what they were doing when they paid it.

How come I’ve paid a shit fucking more taxes than the president and I make under 20$ an hour?

I am a 16-year-old part-time minimum wage worker and I pay more income taxes than the billionaire President of the United States

As an undocumented immigrant, I can now say that I’ve paid more in taxes than the President. According to NYT, @realDonaldTrump paid only “$750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency.”

Meanwhile, I paid $1,559.85 in *quarterly taxes* for Q4 ’19.

#TrumpTaxReturns

I run a small business that has never made more than six figures annually.

Trump paid $750 in taxes in 2017. That year, I paid 225 times that.

I am revolted. https://t.co/0tZRbBW8Ot

My taxable income in 2017 was around $55,000. I paid $7,200 in federal income tax.
Trump paid $750.
#TrumpTaxReturns

I paid more than $750 in income taxes working 39 hours a week at Starbucks during college.

Waking up to the realization that my husband & I pay more in our monthly student loans than Trump pays in taxes is just…whew.

As someone who takes about $17,000 or so a year after taxes, I have paid more in taxes this YEAR (and more taxes will be paid this year) than Trump did in 2016 and 2017. I live paycheck to paycheck while he lives a lavish lifestyle so yeah. Trump can continue to kiss my ass.

He paid $750 in taxes. Seven hundred fifty dollars. I’m a single teacher. One income. At least four times that. I want to vomit.

We cost our humans more in dog food and treats than ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ pays in federal income taxes

My son has worked in the grocery store since he was 16. He worked during the pandemic once they started following acceptable procedures. As a college student, he works during breaks. He pays more federal income tax than Donald Trump.

I own a business. I paid waaaay more than $750.00 in taxes. You know why? I didn’t try to deduct 70,000 for haircuts. I didn’t borrow so much money I was in staggering debt and because wait for it – my business was successful so I owed taxes. #TrumpIsBroke ##DonTheCon

I only get to write off $250 for school supplies on my taxes when I easily spend $1,000+ every year and the president only paid $750. Excuse the language but that’s some bullshit. #TrumpTaxes

I paid more for my last root canal than the dumb, crooked motherfucker paid in taxes for years. And I have dental insurance.

I paid more than $750 in annual taxes when I was broke and could barely afford rent.

The phrase “socialism for the rich, capitalism for everyone else” really needs to catch on.
