President Trump promised Wednesday to bring “revolutionary change” to the federal tax code that will help the middle class — and not the wealthy.
“They can call me all they want. It’s not going to help,” Trump said of the well-to-do in a speech in Indianapolis. “I’m doing the right thing. And it’s not good for me, believe me.”
What would help both the country and his own legacy, Trump said, is when the economy “takes off like a rocket ship” after business taxes are dramatically cut.
The tax changes he outlined are the basis for a plan jointly agreed to with Republican congressional leaders. But Congress still has to fill in many important details before bringing to a vote legislation Trump hopes to sign before the end of the year.
