Trump Tax Scam Backfires on His Middle Class Supporters
Trump supporters are taking to Twitter to complain about huge tax increases under Trump's new plan
With tax season nearly upon us, some people have gotten ahead of the game and started preparing their returns. With the new tax law, many middle-class families are finding out that Trump's tax scam has resulted in them owing thousands of dollars. For Trump supporters, this is an especially hard pill to swallow as you will see below.

Worse tax return I had in a decade! I admit I voted for @realDonaldTrump but he has officially lost my vote for 2020.

@realDonaldTrump I trusted and voted for you, now, screwed by you. I fall JUST above a tax bracket, I don't get the 5000 return I've gotten the last 3 years. Money my family depends on to start us over. I served my country honorably. I will not make the same mistake twice.

@senSchumer well you were right about taxes going up. I am a Republican and I was wrong big time. If it doesn’t change I am not voting for him. All my buddies are really mad they voted for him now.
@amusdrslr: We’re paying $5,000 more in taxes for 2018. Imagine our surprise! We voted for you, we have advocated for you, I have lost life long friends in support of you. I am truly disappointed. Not only have our taxes increased, but you’ve done nothing to fix our healthcare.
Replying to @realdonaldtrump: I voted for you the first time but after you screwed me on my tax break I won’t vote for you again especially after I started on my 2018 return it’s a joke the taxes you are keeping from a working person good luck in 2020.
Yankees Hound: Just got my tax return completed for 1st time under new tax law. I’m officially paying more in taxes so rich people can pay less. You’re almost done wiping out the middle class. @realdonaldtrump and @gop this one is on you. I’d vote for Hillary before I voted for you again.
@realdonaldtrump just did my taxes and thanks for increasing mine!! No change in income and got back $400 less than last year. That campaign promise was one of the only two reasons I voted for you. Rethinking that decision now.
I am a Republican voter. I just did our taxes.
The @GOP tax bill cost my family THOUSANDS of dollars this year on our return due to changes, thereby hitting us with the LARGEST tax increase of our lives.
We are middle-class homeowners, and you raised our taxes.

Voted for you . Family of
2 hard working N.Y. cops. Did taxes for years we would pay more and get a refund at the end of the year to help pay debt . First time in 30 years We had to pay more in Federal
Taxes. I’m disgusted

@POTUS thank you for screwing the middle class with your tax reform. I have never in my life, I’m 49 years old, had to pay into the IRS until this year. We have a combined income of 150,000. The middle class voted for you. I will not make the same mistake twice.

@RepDonBacon I just finished my taxes and we're paying an extra 4k this year since exemptions are gone. With a High D HC plan, this has not been a good year. I voted for you twice now. What's the plan?
