WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — President Trump on Thursday likened House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s calling the recent tax law-related bonuses “crumbs” to Hillary Clinton’s infamous “deplorable” comments from the 2016 campaign.
“But she called it crumbs when people are getting $2,000 and $3,000 dollars and $1,000 — that’s not crumbs. It’s a lot of money,” he said.
Mrs. Pelosi had said that the benefits corporations are getting out of the $1.5 trillion tax-cut law vastly outweigh the “crumbs” companies have been doling out in the way of bonuses and wage increases — comments that Republicans frequently bring up when touting the benefits of the bill.
A spokesman for Mrs. Pelosi said Republicans are being disingenuous and that they’ve been caught “red-handed” enriching their wealthy donors at the expense of working families.
