Another day, another broken promise by “Don the Con.” It’s sure a good thing he’s not “Lyin’ Ted” and “tells it like it is,” right?
National Review reports:
Don’t look now, but Donald Trump is quietly changing his mind on taxes.
Less than 24 hours after he officially became the Republican party’s nominee, Trump’s team revealed that their tax plan would be the subject of some “tweaks.” Specifically, Trump is looking to abandon seven trillion dollars in tax cuts, fully two thirds of the benefit to taxpayers that he had originally proposed. In scale, this is akin to Trump’s abandoning his promise of a wall with Mexico and proposing a little more funding for border security in its place.
It’s just a $7 trillion “tweak,” folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Just remember: They’re only words, big words, fantastic words, from a really big brain. Oh, and by the way, everything he campaigned on was only “suggestions” ( even though when he proposed them, you just knew they were chiseled in stone, didn’t you?), so don’t get too worked up.
Wait a minute, didn’t Melania Trump just promise that her husband was never going to let us down?
