Brown: 'Goldman Sachs' types near Trump pressuring him to slash taxes on rich

Discussing President Trump's push on taxes, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown told Dana Bash on CNN'S State of the Union Sunday morning that President Trump's White House looks like a "retreat for Goldman Sachs executives."

Worth noting: Trump's plan currently drops the top tax rate from 39.6% to 35%. Trump said in a Fox News interview that aired today that he doesn't want to add another bracket for the super wealthy unless he thinks the middle class isn't getting a good enough deal.

More from Brown

  • "I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, and Stephen Miller seems to be. And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled all around the White House."
  • "I would say it's sad, it's worse than sad, that the President engages in this kind of name calling...and tries to demean people that way, and gets in these fights."
  • "I think the media has not been unfair to Trump. I think Trump has made it a point of attacking the media and calling all of you, Dana, enemies of the people."
