Trump is getting desperate, which is why he offered voters a middle-class tax cut which is clearly fake to be voted on after the election.
Trump said before taking off to Texas to rally with Ted Cruz, “No. We’re putting in a resolution some time in the next week and a half to two weeks. We’re going to put in — we’re giving a middle-income tax reduction of about 10%. We’re doing it now for middle-income people. This is not for business. This is for the middle. That’s on top of the tax decrease that we’ve already given them.”
Trump was asked, “Are you signing an executive order for that?”
The president answered, “No, no. I’m going through Congress. We’ll do the vote after the election.”
Here is how we know that Trump is lying about the middle-class tax cut
Trump was lying because he claimed that he was going to introduce a resolution in the next week and a half to two weeks, but he can’t introduce a resolution because Congress will not be in session again until after the election. Secondly, Republicans in Congress have already said that they have no plans to pass any additional tax cuts. Congrats to the idiot who asked if Trump was going to cut taxes by executive order. Presidents can’t cut taxes via executive order. Tax cuts can only be done through Congress.

Trump is trying to bribe voters with a fake tax cut
Trump is promising to cut taxes for middle-income people, but only after the election. Trump is saying vote for Republicans, and I’ll cut your taxes. It’s a bribe that he has no intention of paying. No one is going to vote for Republicans because Trump, the pathological liar, is promising a tax cut later.
It is a desperate ploy that isn’t going to fool or stop anyone from casting their ballot for Democrats because just Trump’s tan everyone knows that his middle-class tax cuts are fake.
