Trump Reveals His Recipe For Economic Growth: 'Regulation, Regulation, And Taxes'

Former President Donald Trump shared his recipe for reviving the U.S. economy, emphasizing the importance of regulations and taxes.

What Happened: Trump, in a recent episode of the All-In podcast, highlighted the significance of regulations and taxes in driving economic growth.

“I say regulation, regulation, and taxes, okay? I gave the biggest tax cut in the history of our country, a lot to businesses,” Trump said.

He further elaborated on the impact of his tax cuts and regulatory reforms, which he believes were crucial in fostering a strong economy and job creation during his tenure.

Trump also addressed the challenges faced by businesses under the current Biden administration, citing the need for a more business-friendly environment.

He also touched on other economic issues, including the rising crime rate in Democrat-run states, global de-dollarization, and his plans to impose high tariffs on China and other countries to counter overproduction by Chinese EV manufacturers.

Why It Matters: Trump’s comments come amid a backdrop of ongoing economic discussions and policy proposals. Just last week, Trump’s proposal to exempt tips from tax was projected to potentially inflate the federal budget deficit by $150 billion to $250 billion over the next decade. This proposal was seen as a strategy to attract younger voters.

However, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen publicly criticized another of Trump’s proposals to replace parts of the U.S. income tax with increased tariffs on imported goods. Yellen’s criticism came amid a push by Trump to unify GOP leaders ahead of the July Republican National Convention.

Despite these policy proposals being labeled as “completely unworkable and disastrous” by economist Paul Krugman, they have been largely disregarded due to the understanding that tariffs cannot substitute income taxes.
