Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden used the Arabic word “inshallah” during a discussion on President Donald Trump’s tax returns at the first presidential debate Tuesday night.
Moderator Chris Wallace had asked Donald Trump about a recent article from The New York Times that said the Republican president paid only $750 in federal income taxes per year in 2016 and 2017.
“I’ve paid millions of dollars, and you’ll get to see it,” Donald Trump replied.
“When?” Joe Biden asked. “Inshallah?”
Joe Biden’s campaign confirmed to NPR that the former vice president had used the Arabic word that means “Allah willing” or “if Allah wills it.”
Yes, he did. I confirmed with his campaign – that is indeed what the man said. https://t.co/MqseBsl2Ck

Yes saw it. And i also saw how validated the muslim community felt to have even sarcastic representation, tells you how low the bar is. But, he said it.

I bet most people missed that. This Karen heard it and gave a small nod to my Muslim colleagues and students. You’re here. And you count.
