“Thanks to the fees we will be able to begin to repay a large national debt of $21 trillion, which was accumulated largely thanks to the Obama administration, at the same time we reduce taxes for our citizens. At least, we will do much better bargain for our country!” – wrote the President of the United States.
He once again pointed to the success that was achieved with the help of introduced by the US government fees. “Every country on earth wants to take the wealth of the US, always to our detriment. When they [foreign companies] come [to us], I say, obligate their taxes. If they don’t want to pay taxes, let them create or produce their products in the USA,” said trump, adding that this will lead to job growth in the country.
