Report: Trump Told Friends at Mar-a-Lago ‘You All Just Got a Lot Richer’ From the Tax Bill

President Trump told friends at his pricey Mar-a-Lago club they “all just got a lot richer” after the passage of new tax overhaul legislation, CBS News reported Sunday. Trump reportedly made the remarks to friends dining at the exclusive club on Friday night, shortly after he signed the controversial bill into law. The president has repeatedly assured that the GOP bill would bring tax relief to the middle class, though critics say parts of the legislation would disproportionately benefit the wealthy. The White House on Saturday stood by its assertion that the legislation would help the middle class, despite the president’s reported comments at Mar-a-Lago, where members pay $200,000 in initiation fees and $14,000 in annual dues.
