At town hall, Trump openly states he plans on slashing Social Security & Medicare if re-elected.


Not much to add to this. Via RawStory:

At a town hall meeting on Fox News Thursday, President Donald Trump acknowledged that his administration intends to cut Social Security and Medicare.

“We — when these trade deals kick in, you know this economy is the best economy we’ve ever had. It’s nothing to what it’s going to be when the trade deals kick in,” said Trump.

“But if you don’t cut something in entitlements, you’ll never really deal with that,” said the questioner.

“We’ll be cutting, but we’re also going to have growth like you’ve never had before,” said Trump.

Ah. Just what you want in the middle of a reelection campaign and a deadly pandemic outbreak.
