Donald Trump cuts Donald Trump’s taxes

As usual for Trump, a plan he proposes which will be more beneficial to himself and his wealthy and corporate associates than it will for the majority of Americans, even his own supporters.

Mr. Trump, smarting from the latest defeat this week of his efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, cast his tax plan as an economic imperative and the fulfillment of a promise to his coalition of working-class supporters to…
