Trump ‘celebrating’ tax day in Minnesota

News

President Donald Trump says he’s celebrating Tax Day.

Trump flew to Minnesota on Monday to highlight the $1.5 trillion package of corporate and individual tax cuts he signed into law in 2017. U.S. taxpayers across the country are rushing to meet a midnight Monday deadline for filing their income tax returns with the IRS.

A smattering of boos rose from the audience at a trucking company in the Minneapolis suburb of Burnsville after Trump said “today is Tax Day that we’re celebrating.”

Trump says incorrectly that he enacted the largest package of tax cuts in history. But the facts don’t bear that out.

Trump’s package considerably trails Ronald Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts, Barack Obama’s 2013 extension of George W. Bush’s tax cuts, and others.
