In an interview on the Fox Business network, President Trump announced that he was “going to do a capital gains tax cut to 15 percent in second term,” and that he believed Republicans were going to take back control of the House of Representatives.

“Well I’ve done the payroll tax cut temporary – you know, this is a temporary payroll tax cut, but this is a very substantial, positive jolt to the economy.” Trump said. “I’m going to do a capital gains tax cut to 15 percent in second term. We’re going to get it down to 15 percent. It’s at 21. We’ll get that down to 15 percent and I’ll get that done easily.”

“We’re going to take the House. I believe we’re going to take back the House because Nancy Pelosi is stone cold crazy, and I think we’re going to take the House.” Trump continued. “And that’s upon – you know, I don’t make a statement like that very easily, but we’re going to take – otherwise, I’ll look very bad, but we’re going to take back the House. We’re going to hold the presidency, and we’re fighting very hard in the Senate.”

“We had the best employment numbers we’ve ever had. We had the best numbers we ever had. We had the best stock market numbers we’ve ever had, which now looks like they’re going to be supplanted by what we have now, if you can even believe that. But we have the best success we’ve ever had and this country was coming together.” Trump later added. “Then the plague hit us from China, a gift from China, and now we’re rebuilding it and it’s going up like a “V”, like a rocket and you look at those numbers on automobiles, on employment.”
