Donald J. Trump sent a strong message to voters and Iran's leaders at Wednesday's "Stop the Iran Deal" rally on Capitol Hill:
"If I win the presidency, I guarantee you that those four [American] prisoners are back in our country before I even take office. I guarantee that, They will be back, beafore I take office, because they know what has to happen. We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning"
Elizabeth Ann Warren:’Donald Trump and I both agree that there ought to be more taxation of the billionaires’
Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she agrees with GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump when it comes to raising taxes on wealthy Americans.
"There are a lot of places where he gets out and talks about important things," Warren said of the celebrity real estate tycoon on ABC's "The View."
Warren Buffett, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, said he supports raising taxes on wealthier Americans and treating carried interest as income, both ideas expressed by the Republican front-runner, who is expected to provide more details on the economic plan in the coming weeks.
Paul Krugman, the liberal economist and New York Times columnist, said Monday that leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is right on taxation and economic policy.In a Times op-ed, Krugman wrote that Trump is correct to embrace a tax hike on the rich and speak out in favor of universal healthcare. He added that conservatives — who are now slamming Trump’s proposals — were wrong to warn about the ill economic impacts of those policies ahead of the 2012 election.
