The Presidential election is now less than five months away.

Needless to say with time running out for the candidates to convince voters that they’re the best choice things are starting to get interesting.

And now restaurant workers are erupting in euphoria over Donald Trump’s latest campaign promise.

Prior to his presidency, Donald Trump was known for treating his employees great

Former President Donald Trump’s name has been dragged through the dirt ever since he announced his candidacy in 2015. 

Democrats and their media allies want to create a public image of him that is impossible to overcome. 

And to that end there have been countless stories of how the Republican frontrunner treats staff at the Trump Organization.

In 2021, The Washingtonian published a story entitled, “Trump Hotel Employees Reveal What It Was Really Like Catering to the Right Wing Elite.” 

In 2016, The Guardian wrote a piece called “Ex-Trump workers describe an egocentric micromanager.”

But when looking far back to 2008, Business Insider wrote a blog about how he really treats his team. 

“The Donald is reportedly doing his part to help his staff weather the economic downturn: He gives each employee $100 every time he sees them,” they wrote.

Now, Trump is turning to hotel and restaurant workers in America with a huge surprise.

“We’re going to do that right away. . .”

At a scheduled campaign stop in Las Vegas last weekend, Trump spoke to thousands of employees in the hospitality industry. 

And the crowd got to hear a “first time” proposal that left them cheering. 

Trump proposed eliminating a “point of contention” for many politicians and service workers.

“So, this is the first time I’ve said this, and for those hotel workers and people that get tips, you’re going to be very happy. . .” he started. 

“When I get to office, we are going to not charge taxes on tips, on people making tips,” he pledged. “We’re going to do it, and we’re going to do that right away, first thing in office because it’s been a point of contention for years and years and years.”

 

 Then, Trump went on to give them all the praise they deserve.

Trump vows to “end this injustice on service-industry workers. . .”

“You do a great job of service, you take care of your people,” Trump told the crowd. “I think it’s going to be something that is deserved — more importantly — popular or unpopular, I do some unpopular things too, if it’s right for the country. . .”

“So those people that have jobs in restaurants or whatever the job may be, a tipping job, we’re not going after it for taxes anymore, that will be ended,” he said.

Social media users responded with huge applause.

Columnist Phil Kerpen responded saying, “this is a long time Ron Paul proposal. His argument is that tips are gifts not wages.” 

 

Another user cited the Bureau of Labor Statistics saying that the move would benefit millions of American workers. 

“According to the BLS, 4.5 million people rely on tips for a significant portion of their income. . .President Trump’s plan to exempt tips from federal income taxes would represent a massive stimulus,” he wrote.

 

 Trump says that if he is elected, he will “end this injustice on service-industry workers all across our nation.”
