Students at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. wanted nothing to do with President Trump’s newly proposed tax plan during a recent string of interviews by a reporter from Campus Reform – but were tricked into loving it after all.
The students were first asked what they thought of Trump’s tax plan. Their responses were harsh.
“It’s better for the upper class than anyone else,” one student said, and another added, “Horrible for the middle class, especially the lower class.”
“It’s probably not the most efficient not beneficial to the populace,” another student said.
But then when Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform told them about “Bernie Sanders’ tax plan,” the students all loved it, as long as they thought it wasn’t Trump’s plan.
Phillips described Trump’s proposal to increase the child tax credit, helping families who have children. He explained Trump’s plan to eliminate the death tax, and also the plan to reduce small business tax rates to a maximum of 25 percent.
All responses were positive and receptive, and then they were shocked to discover that the very plan they agreed with wasn’t Bernie Sanders’ idea at all, but President Trump’s.
“I’m definitely happily surprised that it sounds a lot better than I would have expected it to,” one student said, while another added, “I am shocked that I do agree with Trump on certain things.”
“I would have imagined that he would be a little more stupid than that,” another student stated.
Watch their reactions in the video below, along with the students’ final admission that perhaps there might be more to Donald Trump than they first realized.
