Conservative critics have been hammering Trump for putting Obamacare and tax cuts on the back burners. After sounding the alarm, these critics are getting a response from the president. And it’s a wonderful song he is singing.
President Trump to his conservative critics: I read you loud and clear!
After coming under criticism from many on the right — most prominently, the Drudge Report — for seeming to move popular campaign promises like repealing ObamaCare and reining in the tax code to the back burner, this morning Trump promised a “phenomenal” tax reform package will be presented in the next two to three weeks.
“We want to help you realize these goals by rolling back burdensome regulations, and you people are regulated probably as much as almost anybody,” Trump said. “We have a regulatory morass that’s a disaster.”
He also promised a round of tax cuts.
“Lowering the overall tax burden on American business is big league, that’s coming along very well,” Trump said. “We’re way ahead of schedule, I believe. And we’re going to be announcing something — I would say over the next two or three weeks — that will be phenomenal.”
