Trump Promises ‘Major Tax Cut’ For Middle Class to Be Announced Before Midterms

On Saturday, President Donald Trump spoke to reporters in Elko, Nevada. During those remarks, he teased a “major tax cut” for the middle class that he plans to announce before the midterm.

“We’re looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people,” Trump told reporters. “And if we do that, it will be sometime just prior, I would say, to November. A major tax cut. We are going to be putting in and are studying deeply now around the clock a major tax cut for middle-income people. Not for business at all, for middle-income people. Now the last was for middle income and for business, and our business is now coming back because of it. But we are looking at — Kevin Brady‘s working on it Paul Ryan is working. We’re all working on it. And we’re looking at a major tax cut for middle-income people who need it.”

Then, when asked when it would be announced, he said, it would likely come just a week or so before the midterms.

“I would say sometime around the 1st of November, maybe a little before that,” Trump said.
