Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin couldn't explain in any coherent detail to NBC's The Today Show, how Trump's tax proposal will raise taxes on the rich, cut taxes for the middle class and remain deficit neutral.
In an attempt to get positive press for his first 100 days, Trump sent out his economic minions to try and hoodwink the public by holding a press conference on Wednesday to outline a one page wish list of tax proposals.
Co-host Savannah Guthrie played a clip of Trump promising to raise taxes on the wealthy and she asked the Treasury Secretary, "Would you acknowledge the reform plan you laid out does the exact opposite? It is dramatic cut in taxes for the wealthy"
Mnuchin replied, "This isn't about a dramatic cut in taxes for the wealthy. This is about lowering tax rates..."
Guthrie cut in, "But it does cut taxes for the wealthy, right?"
