A video dating back to just after Trump’s election in November has suddenly surged back into the national consciousness (see video below).
On November 15, 2016, Trump’s spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, told the media that the President-elect would be spending the rest of the evening at his apartment in Trump Tower.
Trump did, however, leave his apartment at 7:30 PM and arrived at the ritzy “21 Club” in midtown Manhattan.
The video itself shows Trump being welcomed to thundering applause as he promised to lower taxes for the richest Americans.
“We’ll get your taxes down. Don’t worry about it,” he said.
To be clear, this is a man who ran on a populist platform promising the New York City elite that he would save them money. And now, Republicans are poised to pass tax reform that they are billing as a boon to the middle class, even though it will actually raise taxes on those making less than $75,000 per year by 2027.
If there was any doubt as to who Trump is actually in office to help, this video should assuage any doubt.
