VIDEO: Students love Trump's tax plan...when told it's Bernie's
- President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.
- When the same ideas are packaged under Bernie Sanders' name, however, liberal college students excitedly endorsed them.
President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.
But what would some of those opponents think if they were told the same plan was being proposed by someone they adore—Senator Bernie Sanders?
To find out, we headed to George Washington University to ask students their opinions on Trump’s new tax plan. WIthout much explanation, the students immediately made clear their distaste for the plan.
“It’s not the most efficient, nor beneficial to the general populace,” said one student when asked her opinion of Trump’s plan.
“It’s better for the upper class than anyone else,” added another.
After watching student after student express their disapproval of the plan, we then asked those same students what they thought of Senator Bernie Sanders’ new tax plan.
Immediately, they expressed excitement and support after hearing the details of the plan.
The only problem for them? There was no tax plan for Senator Sanders. The plan they loved was actually President Trump’s.
How did they react? Watch the full video to find out!
