Economist Tweets Simple GIF That Disproves One Of President Trump’s Most Repeated Lies

By Aimee Lutkin

President Donald Trump has been promising his base substantial tax reform. If you're skeptical that anything Trump plans will actually benefit the low-income population, or even the middle class, that makes sense. His previous healthcare bill was seemingly designed with an interest for keeping money in the top, as opposed to helping lower income constituents. 

But there's another reason to doubt that Trump's administration will suddenly present us with an incredible new tax system: He doesn't know what the heck he's talking about. Shocking! 

On Wednesday, Trump headed to North Dakota to hold meetings on his plans, and tweeted one of his new favorite misinformation pieces. He claims the United States is "the highest taxed nation in the world." 

We're not.
