Trump: ‘If Democrats Continue To Hold This Critical Relief Hostage, I Will Act ... To Get Americans the Relief They Need’

‘We are going to have the payroll tax go until the end of the year’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "If Democrats continue to hold this critical relief hostage, I will act under my authority as president to get Americans the relief they need. And what we're talking about is deferring the payroll tax for a period of months until the end of the year, and I can extend it at a certain period, hopefully I will be here to do the job. We're going to do the job, we’ve been doing the job like nobody could — nobody would, actually. And so we're going to have the payroll tax go until the end of the year and it will be retroactive to July 1st, so we're going to go back to July 1st and it will go to the end of the year, payroll tax. At the end of the year, it may be extended.”
