Trump said the biggest winners will be middle class workers, and that wealthy Americans won’t reap any rewards.

Democrats are calling the plan a giveaway to the rich.

“The top rate on the wealthiest comes down, and the bottom rate on working class families goes up,” said Senator Chuck Schumer. “What kind of plan is this?”
