President Donald Trump held a small rally last night in front of a bunch of truckers to tout his tax plan.
According to Newsmax, Trump explained that the tax plan “would likely give the typical American household a $4,000 pay raise.”
Then he asked the assembled truckers, “How about $4,000 additional for the American family to spend? And you are going to spend that money. It’s going to be put to work — and jobs are going to be produced. We are going to start making our products again. It’s going to happen.”
He continued detailing how his tax plan would benefit the American economy as a whole, but especially for the people who need it most, the middle class.
“Our framework ensures the benefits of tax reform go to the middle class, not to the highest earners,” he said. “It’s a middle-class bill. That’s what we are thinking of. That’s what I want. We want lower taxes, bigger paychecks, and more jobs for American truckers and for American workers.”
Correct. Trump gave a shout out to the hardworking crowd telling every American watching on television how important the trucking industry is to America.
“Nothing gets done in America without the hardworking men and women of the trucking industry,” he said, “When your trucks are moving, America is growing. America first means putting American truckers first.”
The crowd went nuts but not nearly as nuts as when Trump said,
“The American flag. Do we love our American flag?” Trump asked, to roars from the crowd.
“I think people forgot how patriotic we are. I think people forgot how much we love our country. They have learned over the last week, haven’t they?” Trump added barely above the roaring approval from the truckers.
Shaming the NFL players in the process.
