Despite what he thinks about his aid to the areas destroyed by the recent hurricanes, experts have called Trump’s hurricane aid ‘inadequate’ and ‘amateur’ at best. Trump apparently doesn’t agree, though, and has decided to reward himself with a major tax cut while exploiting the hurricane damage.
Proving that he has absolutely no empathy and is a disgusting human being, Trump tweeted this morning that due to the massive destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, wealthy people like himself should be getting more tax cuts – a move that would screw over the everyday American significantly.
With Irma and Harvey destruction, Tax Cuts and Tax Reform is needed more than ever before. Go Congress go!”
Seriously, we can’t think of a more vile human being. These tax cuts would be of great benefit to only a select few – Trump and his rich buddies. It is estimated that Trump’s own tax cut could be worth millions of dollars. Under his tax plan, the incomes of millionaires would be boosted at least 5%.
To suggest this when people are suffering from hurricane damage is absolutely disgraceful and the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma will suffer big time for it. Because Trump wants a tax cut, he is willing to lower federal revenues and strip funds for essential spending like disaster relief!
But of course, Trump and his conservative buddies see nothing wrong with making middle and lower income Americans suffer so that they can line their pockets. If Trump gets his way, America will be in even worse shape when future storms hit, as the funds to recover will simply not be there.
The fact that Trump actually used a major disaster to argue for a tax cut could not be more revolting. Unfortunately, it’s now just another day in Trump’s presidency.
