Trump: I Would ‘Love’ To Cut System That Funds Social Security

Donald Trump has proclaimed that he would ‘love’ to cut one of the major systems that funds Social Security. The comment is the latest indication of Trump’s willingness to attack and destroy Social Security, even though millions of people rely on it.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday once again voiced his support for slashing the payroll tax—the primary funding mechanism for Social Security and Medicare—and said he would be calling for such a cut even if the U.S. were not currently in the midst of a nationwide public health and economic emergency.
