JOE BIDEN/SOCIAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Trump announced his intention to permanently cut the funding source for Social Security — the payroll taxes that American workers pay into, trusting that Social Security will be there for them when they retire.

When asked how he planned to make up for that funding, Trump said: ‘tremendous growth.’ That’s the same magical fix he promised would pay for his tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans back in 2017. That ‘tremendous growth’ never materialized, and instead his mismanagement spiraled our nation into the worst economic and jobs crisis in a century.”
