He’s just making this crap up.
White House officials spent the day trying to decode what Trump meant because no one knew of any policy proposal related to his grand promise of upcoming tax cuts for the middle class https://t.co/uLgXoiPkO3

Trump’s lies are so insidious because they are believed. There are likely millions of voters who wrongly believe a wall is being built. How many duped supporters are making awful financial decisions based on Trump lying about a middle class tax cut that literally doesn’t exist?

-There is no new legislative tax cut circulating on the Hill, 10% or otherwise.
-Sr GOPers in both chambers have no idea what POTUS is talking about.
-No time/will to pass anything in lame duck either.
-Don't even get me started on it being referred to as a "resolution"

“He knows he’s lying. Everybody in Congress knows he’s lying. The reporters know he’s lying. So why is he doing it?” – @JoeNBC notes that Congress is not in session as @realDonaldTrump promises tax cut for the middle class ahead of the midterm elections.

Trump is loving this new line about a 'major middle class tax cut' ahead of November elections — even tho no one I have spoken to in WH, Hill, or among tax geeks knows what he is talking about…

Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have been promising more tax cuts to get voters out for the midterms With Congress out of session, and given how last year's #TaxScam benefited billionaires and big businesses, it's a myth. #TellEveryVoter https://t.co/LvRx4wl961

Yesterday Trump said he is "studying deeply" a "major tax cut for middle income people." When asked for a time frame for that, Trump predicted "sometime around the 1st of November, maybe a little before that."

Brady pretty clear here there’s no middle-class tax cut plan ready to go as Trump has suggested in recent days. https://t.co/hWR8vws3ls
