Trump had a tax plan, was going to change it, now he’s not
He doesn’t know what he wants to do about this or anything else.
Last year, as a candidate for the Republican presidential nominee, Trump released a detailed tax plan. As soon as all the other Republican candidates dropped out of the race, however, he started to distance himself from it, saying the plan is just a “concept” and the starting place for negotiations. The distancing went so far that he commissioned two well-known conservatives to draft a set of suggestions for changing it, lowering its price tag.
But on Thursday, a Trump spokesperson said that the proposal will stay the way it is. “There are no changes being made to the plan,” Hope Hicks told the New York Times in an email, adding that the two men brought in to suggest changes, Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore, don’t speak for the candidate.
