Psaki made the comments during a press conference after a journalist asked if Biden intended to donate a portion of his salary to the government like Trump did when he was president.
The journalist qualified his question by pointing out that there were “very different financial situations” between Trump and Biden.
“We don’t know, we haven’t seen his tax returns. We’re not sure,” Psaki replied, before saying that he would have to speak to Biden about whether he would donate a portion of his salary.
Throughout his presidency, Trump resisted calls to release his tax returns, claiming that a pending IRS audit prevented him from doing so. The IRS stated that an audit did not prevent the president from publishing his tax returns.
By refusing to release his remarks, Trump broke a precedent followed by other presidents and invited greater scrutiny over his finances.
In February, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office obtained Trump’s tax returns after the Supreme Court rejected efforts by Trump’s attorneys to block the records. The district attorney’s office obtained the documents as part of its investigation into possible financial crimes by the Trump Organization.
The House Oversight and Reform Committee also reissued a subpoena for Trump’s tax returns this week. The committee has requested 8 years of documents related to Trump and his businesses.
The New York Times reported that Trump only paid $ 750 in income taxes in 2016 in a long history about his finances after obtaining some of his records.
