Who got to him, is the topic of a different story.

But here is proof that Donald Trump himself, at one time agreed with most of America now, and thought that raising taxes on the wealthy, was a really super good idea….

It was 1999, and Donald Trump was eying the Reform Party’s nomination.

Trump was proposing a onetime net worth tax on individuals and trusts worth 10 million or more. By his calculations, a 14.25 percent levy on such net worth would raise $5.7 trillion and wipe out the debt in one full swoop, grant a middle class a tax cut, and keep Social Security afloat…..

“The plan I am proposing today does not involve smoke and mirrors, phony numbers, financial gimmicks, or the usual economic chicanery you usually find in Disneyland-on-the-Potomac”, Trump said.

If it was great then, Donald Trump… It sure is good now…..
