Trump admits that his tax cuts are for the rich.

@JohnFugelsang
Trump pretends to be a billionaire and the Koch brothers have over $41billion apiece but they all share one core belief - the minimum wage is too damn high.

PS- Hey #MAGA, he just admitted that his tax cut was mainly for the rich.
(And he's trying to do another via exec order)

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I donít need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made.....

1. EVERY

item at the store has gone up. Vegetables have increased 1/3. What's the endgame here? Just like w the price hikes when gas was 4.00...the prices never came down. I'll starve before I'm hijacked by the grocery store. So unnecessary. Why are farmers charging so much when they get farm welfare for the tariffs? Double dipping and gouging. THANKS DON.

3. The main reason produce prices have gone up is because Trump's immigration policies

have caused the immigrant farm workers who do the harvesting to be deported or to not come in the first place. So the produce is rotting in the fields, meaning what does get harvested is more expensive (and check the origins of that produce; a lot actually comes from Mexico). The farmers who are being harmed by the tariffs will not be adequately compensated (most of the money will go to big agribusiness), and many will go bankrupt and lose their farms. So if you think agricultural commodities are expensive now, just wait. But it isn't the farmers' fault.

4. I understand that..ty.

The cost of almost every item at the store has gone up drastically though. Vegetables being the big one. Meat...omg. A luxury. Only thing that hasn't yet is cleaning stuff. Wages stagnant, this isn't sustainable. I see a tipping point....real soon.

6. "I made them......richer"

Not rich

That claim grated on my nerves. And I reckon a lot of folks recognize the phrase 'the rich get richer'

Basically he admitted to helping the 1% and then claimed to be for the American worker. First the Kochs are a total joke, then they are nice guys

3am he is tweeting
