Trump’s war on the middle class

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

Remember Trump’s “middle-class” tax cut? Not so much.

“No one will gain more from tax cuts than low and middle-income Americans.”

That’s what Trump said on August 8, 2016. Three years later, it’s clear that he broke his promise to working Americans:

  • The average tax cut for the top 1% of earners was $55,190. For the bottom 40% of earners (those making less than $41,000 per year) that tax cut amounted to a whopping $255.

As CAP’s Sam Berger put it in MarketWatch today, “Trump has turned the government against the middle class.”
