‘Smash-and-grab economics’: Trump White House weighing tax cut for rich investors as workers and small businesses struggle

Published

The Trump administration was condemned for considering "rewarding vulture capitalists profiting off a crisis."

As desperate workers, the unemployed, and small businesses struggle to obtain benefits authorized under the multi-trillion-dollar coronavirus stimulus package President Donald Trump signed into law late last month, the White House is reportedly considering an additional slate of aid measures that critics say would disproportionately favor the wealthy while providing little relief for those most in need.
