Trump Touts ‘Very Big’ Middle Class Tax Cut

A “very big” tax cut for middle-class Americans will be announced over the next 90 days, President Donald Trump said in an interview Wednesday.

“We will make that permanent for the middle class,” Trump told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo in an interview from the World Economic Forum in Davis, Switzerland, where he also added that further initiatives are coming on healthcare.

“We’ve done well with health care. We got rid of the individual mandate. That was a thing people couldn’t do, they couldn’t afford it, they didn’t want it,” said Trump. “They were forced to pay a number and not get health care. We are coming up with a plan that is going to be fantastic.”

Last week, Trump’s top economic aide Larry Kudlow said he’s been working on a “Tax Cuts 2.0” plan to be released later this summer, in time to be a campaign issue ahead of the 2020 election.

The tax cuts are in contrast with plans being presented by Democrats seeking the presidential nomination who are proposing tax increases to pay for expanded government services.
