New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted copies of his 2016 tax returns and jabbed President Donald Trump for not releasing his own documents.

De Blasio, a Democrat, and his wife reported an adjusted gross income of $220,651 and paid $69,523 in federal, state and city taxes, according to the New York Daily News, attributing the figures to Henry Berger, special counsel to the mayor.

In a statement linked from his tax tweet, de Blasio said: "President Trump's tax giveaway to the wealthiest among us makes zero sense, as does his decision to break decades of precedent and refuse to share his tax returns with the American people.

"We won't bore you with the endless excuses our president has made. We'll just say this: No one forces any of us to run for public office, but those in public office must be transparent about our finances."
