After the Senate moved on the health care bill Tuesday, Trump moved on to more pressing matters. Trump has decided to overhaul the tax code and make it look like he’s benefitting the middle class.
Campaign Promises Claims
“The people I care most about are the middle-income people in this country, who have gotten screwed,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, reiterating that he supposedly wants to bring down the corporate tax rate to 15%. “And if there’s upward revision it’s going to be on high-income people.”
Trump hopscotched across a variety of policy and personnel topics over the course of the 45-minute interview. He then continued to bash on Sessions and say that his job wasn’t safe
Turning to back to taxes after he jumped topics like a rabbit, he vomited back some of the lies he spewed during his campaign. He wants to boost economic growth and ease the tax burden on middle-class families.
“I have wealthy friends that say to me, ‘I don’t mind paying more tax,’ “Trump said. “We have to take care of middle-income people in this country. They built the country. They started this whole beautiful thing that we have. And we have to take care of them. And people have not taken care of them, and we’re going to.” Lies, lies, and more alternative facts.Trump’s aides are working with top Republican lawmakers on a proposal that would bring about the first major rewrite of the tax code in 30 years. Mr. Trump and White House officials have been vague on significant middle-class provisions, such as the personal exemption
Trump’s aides are working with Republicans on a proposal that would bring about the first major rewrite of the tax code in 30 years. Trump and White House officials have been vague on significant middle-class provisions, such as the personal exemption, while promising specific benefits for high-income households such as the repeal of the estate tax and alternative minimum tax. Mr. Trump didn’t elaborate Tuesday on how he planned to favor the middle class. Which means it’s nothing but fake news.
