Sorry to disappoint you, but I do not get all my information from mainstream media... any of them. I listen to many sides, especially information that each omits - that is often the key. I also include my own personal experience, and research.

Trump has a love/ hate relationship with the elite probably because he has always been a new money outsider.

I lived too close to NYC to avoid all Trump's antics, and media exposure, starting somewhere around 1980. It's not a stretch to believe that he hasn't changed all that much since then.

In regard to the big tax breaks you mention, yes, some good has come from it, but how much? Those middle class breaks have a deadline, the other breaks do not. Why?

Too much of this tax break is similar to Reagan's 'trickle down' economics. Did that work well for you?

The basic premise really does sound reasonable, but it is impossible. Regardless how the ultra rich spend their money, they will never purchase 1000 homes to live in, or 10000 vehicles to drive. But if the middle class truly still existed, they would be doing just that. They would be putting that money back into the US economy. Time had proven that the ultra rich are more like hoarders with money. That's why offshore havens, and tax shelters have grown exponentially over the past 30 years.

I'm glad for logical disagreements, backed by facts. But I have no interest in hate, or aggression, there is just too much of that already.

For the record, I still hold hope that Trump does more good than harm. At the very least, I believe that our Constitutional Republic will be made better for the shake up that the current administration is causing.
