Meanwhile, President Trump is using Hurricane Irma as an excuse to push for tax cuts for the rich. This is Trump, speaking Saturday.
President Donald Trump: “To create prosperity at home, we’ll be discussing our plan for dramatic tax cuts and tax reform. And I think now, with what’s happened with the hurricane, I’m going to ask for a speed-up.”
Best-selling author Naomi Klein tweeted, “One for the shock doctrine record books: Trump uses #Irma to push for tax cuts WHILE THE STORM IS STILL HAPPENING.”
