Trump promised a major tax cut if he and GOP wins in 2020

President Trump has promised a “major middle income Tax Cut” if he and Republicans win in 2020. 

“‘Face It, You Probably Got A Tax Cut!’ This was a New York Times headline, and it is very true,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “If Republicans take back the House, and keep the Senate and Presidency, one of our first acts will be to approve a major middle income Tax Cut! Democrats only want to raise your taxes!” 

Trump was apparently referring to a Times report from April which says most Americans probably had their taxes reduced by the GOP-led tax overhaul even though a poll at the time found that many did not believe the changes impacted them.

The president’s endorsement of the Times’ piece is notable given his frequent criticisms of the outlet.

Days ago, he tweeted: “The New York Times will be out of business soon after I leave office, hopefully in 6 years. They have Zero credibility and are losing a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. I’m fairly certain they’ll endorse me just to keep it all going!”
