Donald Trump gave an extensive interview to Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes” last night. During the interview, he covered taxes, immigration, ISIS, and Obamacare.
Pelley pressed Trump for specifics on each of these topics, and got very little in return.
When it came to taxes, Trump offered the tired “middle class tax cut” line that every single politician on both sides of the aisle uses. But beyond that, it was the same promise of “details later.”
Scott Pelley, the “60 Minutes” anchor who conducted the interview, pushed Trump on the particulars of his tax policy plan with little success.
“We’re talking about numbers — that will be announced over the next two days,” Trump said. “And they’ll be significant for the middle class.”
When pressed on which taxpayers could expect to pay less in taxes if he is elected, Trump responded: “I will say this: There will be a large segment of our country that will have a zero rate, a zero rate. And that’s something I haven’t told anybody.”
There’s already a large segment of the country that has a zero rate in taxes. As I recall, Mitt Romney got roasted for mentioning it. So, where exactly does Trump draw the line? We don’t know. Will we know in two days? No idea, since Trump has been promising policy details for a while now.
