On Monday, a federal official confirmed several Democratic lawmakers' suspicion about President Donald Trump's proposal to eliminate payroll taxes if re-elected: It would wipe out the Social Security trust fund within three years.


The news prompted anger on social media, with commenters demanding the president and his Republican allies leave Social Security alone.
