(Liberty Bell) – The Democrats thought they could use the coronavirus pandemic to destroy the booming, historic Trump economy and damage his chances at re-election, but they seriously underestimated their political enemy.
President Donald Trump was voted into office by people who understood that this political outsider and wildly successful businessman had what it took, both in experience and his desire to drain the swamp of greed and corruption, to truly make our nation great again.
He’s always been dedicated to cutting taxes and getting more money in the pockets of Americans of all backgrounds and belief systems, and already he is making sure that we will recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
Are voters really going to vote for the party that’s pushing wildly radical political changes in the form of relief over a man who is actually giving relief directly to the people as they struggle to make ends meet and keep their businesses afloat?
You tell me.
President Trump said Friday he would defer the payroll tax until the end of the year, using an executive order.
The tax would continue to be deferred until the end of 2020, the president said, and would likely be retroactive from July 1.
He said that by the end of 2020 the payroll tax break could be extended.
“Hopefully I’ll be here to do the job,” Trump said, hinting at the results of Election Day.
The president also said he would extend unemployment benefits, defer student loan payments and interest, and extend the eviction moratorium as well as an order requiring health insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions.
“If Democrats continue to hold this critical relief hostage, I will act under my authority as president to get Americans the relief they need,” he said.
The president said that the lawyers were drawing up the executive orders and that they could be signed by the end of the week.
Asked whether he was concerned about the legality of his executive order, Trump replied, “No, not at all. You always get sued, everything you do you get sued … we’ll see.”
POTUS directly addressed the Democrats’ unwillingness to put aside hyper-partisan politics for the sake of easing the economic burden for millions of Americans.
“Tragically Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer continue to insist on radical leftwing policies that have nothing to do with the China virus,” Trump said.
