Told ya so….
Yesterday in Davos Switzerland one Donald J. Trump mussed about cutting American entitilemts…..
NOT A GOOD LOOK….
Cutting Social Security is something NO Democrat or Republican wants to defend come November…
I KNEW someone was gonna take the big guy aside and tell him running on such things was about the ONLY way he would force Republicans to desert him on a issue and NOT be afraid to do so…
He got the message…
The retreat couldn’t be fast enough…
President Trump on Thursday sought to assure his followers on Twitter that he would protect Social Security benefits after Democrats seized on an interview in which he indicated he would be open to cutting entitlement programs down the road.
Trump told CNBC in an interview on Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that he would “take a look at” rolling back entitlements “at the right time” before quickly pivoting to discuss the strength of the economy.
But the indication that he was open to cutting government programs like Social Security and Medicare provided Democrats with an opening that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) latched onto.
“The president promised that unlike other Republicans, he wouldn’t touch Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. He’s already broken that promise and gone after Medicare. Now it looks like Social Security is in the president’s crosshairs as well,” Schumer said at the outset of a press conference to discuss the Senate impeachment trial.
“Even as this important trial continues, Americans should hear that the president is casually talking about cutting their Social Security at a Swiss ski resort with the global financial elite,” Schumer added.
Trump responded on Thursday afternoon by saying that Social Security was not in danger.
“Democrats are going to destroy your Social Security. I have totally left it alone, as promised, and will save it!” Trump tweeted….
