Sherrod Brown: Trump Can Help Middle-Class or Ally with Billionaires

(CNN/"State of the Union")

President Donald Trump is at a “fork in the road” on tax reform, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said Sunday.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Brown, who attended a Senate Finance Committee meeting at the White House last week, said Trump can work with Democrats on helping the middle class and keeping jobs in the country — or ally with “the billionaires.”

“That’s the fork in the road,” he said. “And so far, the jury’s out.”

“If he throws in with [Senate Leader Mitch] McConnell and the billionaires, Democrats don't support it,” he asserted.

“If he chooses to fight for the middle class and help those companies that keep production in the United States, not the bill that McConnell has, if he does that, it’s a bipartisan bill. That’s what I have been saying all along.”

Brown also compared Trump's White House to a retreat for Goldman Sachs executives.

"The people closest to the president whispering in his ear all want to do tax cuts for — want to do trickle-down economics, big tax cuts for the wealthiest people in the country, and hope it trickles down," Brown said.

“They say it’s budget-neutral, and they say it will raise wages,” he said. “It’s never done that throughout history.”
