U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he may suspend the payroll tax himself as part of his administration’s efforts to help the economy after the coronavirus shutdown, after the idea faced opposition in Congress in talks on the next relief bill.
“Well I may do it myself,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “I have the right to suspend it, and I may do it myself – I have the absolute right to suspend the payroll.”
We all laugh, but just remember: if Biden had said this, the Trump campaign would have already cut attack ads on it and Fox News would have devoted a day’s coverage to Biden’s gaffe/dementia etc on Yosemite. The Dems could do far more to weaponize Trump’s sheer ignorance tbh. https://t.co/z9a4bPUPSy

Trump is responsible for many of these deaths. As are his enablers: Republicans in Congress, the people who work for him, Fox News, conservative media, evangelical supporters, and Trump voters. They are all putting the nation at the mercy of an ignorant egotist. https://t.co/dLDMqj9Q9j
