Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairperson of the Republican National Committee, on Sunday faced backlash after suggesting that "82% of Americans" make more than $400,000 per year.


In a tweet on Sunday, McDaniel pointed to a video clip from a conservative media group, which asserted that "middle income earners" will see a tax increase under a Joe Biden presidency. However, Biden has said that he will not raise taxes on individuals making less than $400,0000 per year.

"Joe Biden would raise taxes on 82% of Americans, and we cannot afford it!" McDaniel wrote.

Dozens of comments pointed out that most Americans do not make over $400,000 per year.
