Florida Democratic Party Chair Statement on Two-Year Anniversary of Trump's Tax Scam

As Trump returns to the Sunshine State, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo released the following statement ahead of the Second Anniversary of Trump’s Tax Scam:

“Trump promised Floridians that he would lower taxes for ‘everybody.’ But once again, Trump broke his promise to voters in the Sunshine State,” said Chair Terrie Rizzo, “In reality, Trump’s tax scam showered the richest corporations with billions in tax cuts, while working families have seen no benefits. If Trump thinks he can pass off his Tax Scam as a win for Florida, he is sorely mistaken — and will find that out come Election Day 2020.”
