Trump is at his members only Winter White House for the Christmas holidays after signing a massive GOP Tax scam, uh, bill, into law. When he arrived, according to Newsweek and multiple sources, he reportedly told wealthy friends dining at Mar-a-Lago
“You all just got a lot richer.”
Days before heading away for the holidays, Trump said that the tax bill would be
“one of the great Christmas gifts to middle-income people.”
But Mar-a-lago’s exclusive dinner guests who paid a $200,000 initiation fee and $14,000 in annual dues to Trump’s golf club and resort heard the POS POTUS made comments to friends eating dinner at a nearby table, two of whom spoke of the incident with CBS News.
Trump told reporters at the Oval Office signing on Friday.
“It’s going to be a tremendous thing for the American people. It’s going to be fantastic for the economy. It’s going to keep companies from leaving our shores and opening up in other countries.”
Ultra-wealthy earners in the 95th to 99th percentile received the largest tax cuts of all, even though the top 1 percent already holds 40% of all American wealth. Instead of the 35% tax cut that he promised middle class voters, their taxes decreased by just 10 percent.
According to a report by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, every income group received a tax cut from the Republican tax reform, but most individual tax cuts will go away in the next 7 years. 53% of Americans will be paying MORE in taxes in 10 years.
Trump told White House reporters,
“I consider this very much a bill for the middle class and a bill for jobs. And jobs are produced through companies and corporations, and you see that happening. Corporations are literally going wild over this.”
But he told his rich friends the truth.
