Trump Says Recent Hurricanes Are Proof Tax Cuts Are Needed (TWEETS)

As residents of both Texas and Florida attempt to rebuild their lives after the damage inflicted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, President Trump thought it would be the perfect time to start urging Congress to act on tax cuts for the richest Americans. And he even tried to use the hurricanes to make his point:

Yeah, people have seen their homes destroyed and million are still without power or water, but Trump wants to make sure Congress gets busy on those tax cuts which will benefit him and his family, along with other members of the top 1 percent. If you make a million dollars a year or more, the Trump tax cut would boost your income by 5 percent a year! That’s great news for Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka, Jared Kushner, and the other millionaires and billionaires in Trump’s administration, but what about the rest of us?

Fortunately, there was plenty of resistance from others on social media who took Trump to task:

Trump is disgusting sack of human excrement. Thousands of people see their dreams lying in ruins, and he’s whining about tax cuts. There aren’t enough words for just how disgusting and deplorable he is.
