Even though it took him nearly a year, Donald Trump finally managed to get a bill through Congress this week. The infamous tax scam bill which will drastically cut tax rates for the ultra-rich and corporations while doing virtually nothing for anyone else is now law, and the president is eager to pat himself on the back.
At his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida where he’s spending the holidays, Trump was heard bragging to club members and friends that he had just delivered for them BIGLY. According to CBS News, Trump had this to say to those who were at the club Saturday evening:
“You all just got a lot richer.”
What Trump neglected to say, however, is that he and his family also got a lot richer because the new tax rates will be a giant boon to him.
CBS News also notes:
“Mr. Trump directed those comments to friends dining nearby at the exclusive club — including to two friends at a table near the president’s who described the remark to CBS News.”
So, as you celebrate this special time of the year, rest assured that Donald Trump and his rich friends are very happy and getting wealthier by the minute. Sure, you probably got next to nothing in the tax bill and may even lose your health insurance because the premiums are about to skyrocket, but Trump managed to accomplish something. Aren’t you happy for him?
