Trump changes his tune, says he doesn't want a tax cut

As of Wednesday afternoon, President Trump is not considering cutting taxes to stimulate the economy, according to remarks he made to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. That’s the opposite of what he said in the Oval Office on Tuesday, when he told reporters, “We’re always looking at the capital gains tax, payroll tax,” and a return to what White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley had said earlier that day, when he told Fox News that a payroll tax cut was “not being considered at this time.”
