Trump: wealthy have to accept higher taxes under his tax reform plan

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that wealthy Americans will gain nothing under his tax reform plan and may even have to pay higher taxes.

Speaking at a meeting with a group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers at the White House, Trump said his main goal was to cut taxes for the middle class and cut corporate taxes to boost job growth.

“The rich will never gain anything with this plan, we look at the middle class and look at jobs, jobs are the economy, so we look at the middle class and look at jobs,” he said.

“I think the rich will stay pretty much what they are … and if taxes have to be increased, they will be increased,” Trump said.
