GOP Priority: Giving the Trumps a Multi-Billion Dollar Tax Windfall

From Jon Perr at PERRspectives:

Republican leaders in Congress may not be ready to abandon Donald Trump, but there’s little doubt about their growing discomfort with the president of the United States. Supposedly shocked by Trump’s coddling of white supremacists in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker questioned Trump’s ability to either the “demonstrate the stability” or “competence” required of presidents. A sheepish House Speaker Paul Ryan told a CNN town hall that Trump “messed up” in his handling of the neo-Nazi thuggery in Virginia and proclaimed, “This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, under assault from Trump after the GOP failure to repeal Obamacare, hasn’t spoken to the president in weeks and, according to the New York Times, “privately expressed uncertainty that Mr. Trump will be able to salvage his administration after a series of summer crises.”

With the summer Congressional recess about to end, the GOP’s best and brightest are planning a post-Labor Day payback for the president. His punishment? A massive tax cut windfall for the wealthy that will redirect billions of dollars from the United States Treasury to Donald Trump and his children.
