Supporters of President Donald Trump have taken to Twitter in droves over the past few weeks to complain about Trump’s tax plan. They’ve just figured out that the 2017 GOP tax cut means that many middle-class Americans have to pay more in taxes because the bill eliminated some deductions they previously used to lower their annual tax payments.
For example, the tax bill capped deductions for taxes paid to local and state governments, while drastically increasing the amount of money a person has to donate in order to qualify for a charitable giving deduction.
These Trump voters are not shy about letting their disappointment in the president and in the Republican party be known.
Wait til you file your taxes. Middle class just lost half their return. Lowest refund I have ever had and I am 50yrs old. No wall and now this tax reform sucks too!! Starting to doubt Trump. I voted for him and trusted him too.

@realDonaldTrump I trusted and voted for you, now, screwed by you. I fall JUST above a tax bracket, I don't get the 5000 return I've gotten the last 3 years. Money my family depends on to start us over. I served my country honorably. I will not make the same mistake twice.

I am a Republican voter. I just did our taxes.
The @GOP tax bill cost my family THOUSANDS of dollars this year on our return due to changes, thereby hitting us with the LARGEST tax increase of our lives.
We are middle-class homeowners, and you raised our taxes.

Hopefully, the next time someone tries to explain to them that the “cut” part of tax cut was just for the very wealthy people, they’ll pay attention. Reported wokeloth
