LANSING– In an interview today, Donald Trump vowed to attack Medicare and Social Security in his second term, saying they will be on the plate “toward the end of the year.”
The promise represents Trump’s latest attack in a long battle to slash the critical programs. After promising Michigan voters to “save and protect Social Security and Medicare” during his presidential campaign, Trump has time and again fought to slash the programs, including $845 billion from Medicare alone.
“Donald Trump has broken his promise to protect Michigan families from attacks on Social Security and Medicare, instead leading the assault against these critical programs,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesman Christian Slater. “Michigan’s working families know they can’t afford four more years of Trump’s broken promises and assaults on the programs they rely on to thrive.”
