“Some of the very unfair deductions that certain people have been given who make a lot of money will not be available any longer”.

Trump’s inflammatory words about immigrants and Mexico, in particular, have obscured his blunt plans for immigration reform. Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina are tied for third.
The top rate for the wealthiest earners would drop from 39.6% now to a mere 25%.
“Obamacare’s going to be repealed and replaced”, Trump said. Donald J. Trump’s Donald J. Trump Tax Plan will cut everyone’s taxes, yes, but the biggest cuts go to corporations and rich people and their obnoxious trust fund babies.

Trump said he has no problem with “fair” stories that paint him in a bad light, but for the most part, that has not been happening on the campaign trail, he said. He pointed out that about 40 percent of Americans are exempt from paying federal income taxes, and said the tax burden on the middle class “comes from other places”.
