Trump endorses 25-cent gas tax hike


Trump really is all over the place. Cut here, spend here. Raise taxes on gasoline – because you know, it’s not taxed enough yet.

Taxes are supposed to be cut, not raised Mr. President.

(From Axios)

President Trump endorsed a 25-cent gas tax hike to pay for infrastructure at a White House meeting this morning with senior administration officials and members of Congress from both parties, according to two sources with direct knowledge. Trump also said he was open to other ways to pay for infrastructure, according to a source with direct knowledge.

Reality check: Trump’s gas tax idea appears dead on arrival. Republicans aren’t about to hike taxes for the Trump voters driving their pickup trucks to work every day.

I love that Axios has to get in the “pickup truck” dig. Just because the folks at Axios drive Priuses and don’t know what it is to drive like an American is no reason to dis pickup truck drivers. C’mon guys.
