Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden swiped at President Donald Trump on Thursday in wake of the Supreme Court’s blockbuster decision that upheld Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s subpoena for Trump’s tax returns.

“As I was saying,” Biden tweeted in a repost of an old video in which the former VP tells Trump to “release your tax returns or shut up.”

“Mr. President, you want to talk about corruption? I’ve released 21 years of my tax returns,” Biden says in the video.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court sided with Vance in a 7-2 ruling that shot down the Trump legal team’s claims of presidential immunity from criminal investigations.

Trump subsequently threw a fit, tweeting that the decision was “not fair to this Presidency or Administration!”
