President Donald Trump said during a stop on the campaign trail Monday that he will double down on his pro-American domestic policy if he is reelected to a second term in office in November’s election, delivering a promise to “cut middle class taxes even further.”
The President’s remarks came during a campaign rally in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, the latest in a series of rallies across the Commonwealth, which is widely viewed as a key battleground state.
“And in my second term I will cut middle class taxes even further,” President Trump stated, eliciting uproarious applause from the crowd.
Tax cuts have become a key issue in recent weeks, as the Biden campaign tries to downplay concerns that a Biden-Harris administration would levy a heavy tax burden on the American middle class.
“Let me be very clear: If you make under $400,000 you won’t pay a penny more in taxes under my administration,” the official Biden Twitter account said on October 15.

Biden has repeatedly promised to reverse the Trump administration’s tax cuts, however, leaving many voters skeptical of his commitment to not raise taxes on working families.
On Monday, high-profile rappers Lil Pump and Wacka-Flocka Flame signalled support for Trump, citing Biden’s tax policy.
“All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b**ch. F**k I look like paying 33 in tax for Biden, b**h ass n***a. F**k sleepy Joe n***a. Trump 2020 b**ch,” Pump said.
