Biden's 'Inshallah' during the so-called 'historic' US debate on Twitter |  US & Canada

Social media users have reacted to Joe Biden using the Arabic word to express optimism over the investigation into the Trump tax controversy.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden expressed skepticism during Tuesday night’s debate over whether U.S. President Donald Trump would ever release his tax returns.

“You see it,” Trump repeatedly said, urging moderator Chris Wallace to adhere to a set timeline. Biden said, “When? Inshalla? ”

While translating the Arabic phrase “God wills,” it also has the literal meaning of vague commitment.

Biden has previously released his personal income taxes, which show that former vice president and his wife Jill Biden paid 30 percent of their gross personal income of 5,000 985,000.

Trump, on the other hand, has refused to voluntarily release his income tax returns – a presidential tradition that stretched back decades.

The New York Times reported Monday that Trump has not paid any federal income tax in 10 of the last 15 years. The former businessman paid just $ 750 in 2016 and another $ 750 in 2017.

During a debate Tuesday night, Trump disputed the report, saying “millions of dollars in taxes, millions of dollars in income tax.”

Social media users responded with humor to Biden’s “inshalla” comment, with many Twitter users immediately posting their reactions.

Some have described it as a “historic moment in America.”

Others wondered if Biden had said “in July” more than the usual Arabic expression.

However, Asma Khalid, the NPR national political correspondent covering the 2020 elections, said she had confirmed it with the Biden campaign.

Some have expressed surprise, saying “anything is possible in 2020” in a year marked by unprecedented events.
