Payroll blackmail: President Trump is that desperate for your vote

As of Tuesday, President Trump enacted what is known as a "payroll tax holiday", meaning that the payroll tax in your paycheck is being given to you for the final 1/3 of 2020, and it will go away if Trump loses his bid for re-election in November.

"If Trump loses his bid for re-election in November". Think about that for a second. This amounts to payroll blackmail on the part of the insane president, who realizes his chances of a second term are hanging by threads with less than two months to go.

Oh, sure, you might get a 4-month bounce in your pay, but it will be going back once the payroll tax is taken out again come January.

Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains:

Desperate men will do desperate things. This is one of those desperate things. Don't fall for this con.
