President Trump promised a new “very substantial” tax cut package for middle-income people at a conference. He offered during the annual retreat of House Republicans, which took place in a Baltimore coastal hotel, according to the VOA citing The Associated Press’s report.
The president recalled the tax reduction package of $1.5 billion that his administration approved in 2017, before promising to deliver a new proposal “sometime this year.”
“We are working on a tax cut for the middle-income people that is going to be very, very inspirational. It’s going to be something that I think it’s what everyone’s really looking for,” said President Trump.
“t will be a very, very substantial tax cut for middle-income folks, who work so hard,” he added.
The president, who was greeted at his entrance with chants of “four more years,” referred to the Democratic presidential debate taking place at the same time.
“The agenda of the Democrat Party is the demolition of the American middle class,” he said, according to Fox, mentioning some of the promises he has kept since taking office, such as the reduction of regulations, growth of the economy, or a drop in unemployment.
He wondered if his opponents would include in their speech the reduction in the unemployment rate of Latinos and African Americans. “I wonder if that would be mentioned tonight during the debate?” he asked. “I don’t think so.”
“We are going to do a lot of other great changes“
“We have done tremendous changes in our country and we are going to do a lot of other great changes,” the president continued, determining that it is essential to move forward “to remain united.”
“You have to fight like hell,” President Trump said, emphasizing, “Our country will go to hell if any of these people [Democrats] get in.”
Days ago, President Trump reproached Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) that the progressive policies he pushed led to the current bad state and crime situation in Baltimore City, where the event took place.
“We’re going to have to step up and do something about it because we can’t allow that to happen to our great cities,” he said.
He also noted that “unrestricted migration,” coupled with excessive taxes and regulations from Democratic governments, had undermined law enforcement and devastated U.S. hinterland cities.
In that regard, he pledged that Republicans “would fight for the future of cities like Baltimore that have been destroyed by decades of failed and corrupt rule.”
