Donald Trump can never focus on disclosing his economic proposals as he faces new political challenges that include a poll showing him losing to Hillary Clinton not by one but by double digits plus the unexpected entry of a new candidate into the race for the White House that would be the option for people who are not into Hillary Clinton, that would definitely grab his votes away.
Detroit, a new Monmouth University poll showed Trump’s Democratic rival backed by 46% of registered voters vs 34% for him, 7% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 2% for Green Party’s Jill Stein; Clinton had 43% to 40% lead over Trump in same survey taken last month and know the lead is increasing.
Another Republican who is an anti-Trump Evan McMullin, a former top aide at the House Republican Conference and one-time CIA counterterrorism officer, will also run for president as a third-party conservative alternative to Donald Trump.
Trump then announced changes to his plan to slash individual income-tax rates, taking the top rate down to 33% from a current 39.6%, higher than the 25% top rate he initially proposed.
Trump’s newly proposed rates of 12%, 25% and 33% mirror those proposed by House Republicans under Speaker Paul Ryan in June, that could mean that he is trying to woe fellow Republicans who are against him prompting Mcmullin’s candidacy.
