Trump is livid at Jared Kushner over the ‘inept and flat-footed’ coronavirus response: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has lost faith in his son-in-law and senior advisor, according to a bombshell new report by Gabriel Sherman in Vanity Fair.

“With the markets in free fall despite emergency action by the Fed over the weekend, Trump is waking up to the reality that’s been clear to everyone: Coronavirus poses a once-in-a-hundred-years threat to the country,” Vanity Fair reported. “As Trump processes the stakes facing the country—and his presidency—he’s also lashing out at advisers, whom he blames for the White House’s inept and flat-footed response. Sources say a principal target of his anger is Jared Kushner.”

Sherman interviewed a former West Wing official about Trump’s change in attitude towards his daughter’s husband.

“I have never heard so many people inside the White House openly discussed how pissed Trump is at Jared,” the former West Wing official said.

Kushner has taken the lead in the White House response.

“Trump was also said to be angry that Kushner oversold Google’s coronavirus testing website when in fact the tech giant had a fledgling effort. Trump got slammed in the press for promoting the phantom Google product,” Vanity Fair noted.

About 75% of Trump’s proposed coronavirus capital gains tax cut would go to the top 1% of earners

Published

on

Roughly three-quarters of the benefits from the capital gains tax cut floated by President Donald Trump as part of the administration's coronavirus relief plan would go to the top 1% of earners, according to the Tax Policy Center.

Trump has repeatedly floated a cut to capital gains taxes, which are taxes paid by investors on profits made when an asset, like stock or real estate, is sold. The capital gains tax rate is already 35% lower than the top income tax rate, and only about 6% of households in the bottom 80% of earners claim any capital gains, meaning the overwhelming majority of benefits would flow to the wealthy.
