Former President Trump on Friday criticized House Democrats for releasing six years of his tax returns, saying such "weaponized" partisanship is a "dangerous two-way street."

Trump responded on his Truth Social media platform hours after the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee released six years of his returns – after committee members last week voted along party lines in favor of the release.

"The Democrats should have never done it, the supreme court should have never approved it, and it's going to lead to horrible things for so many people," Trump also said. "The great USA divide will now grow far worse. The radical, left Democrats have weaponized everything, but remember, that is a dangerous two-way street!"

Still, the former president also argued the returns show how successful he is.

"The 'Trump' tax returns once again show how proudly successful I have been and how I have been able to use depreciation and various other tax deductions as an incentive for creating thousands of jobs and magnificent structures and enterprises," he wrote.
