The announcement came Wednesday during a speech to the Economic Club of New York, smack in the middle of a fresh-off-the-press Biden exposé.

“We are going to be cutting taxes further and that includes business taxes, but it includes especially middle-income taxes,” the president said in a live address from the Rose Garden, streamed to six of the nation’s nonprofit and nonpartisan Economic Clubs, the New York Post reports.

The president placed a huge emphasis on his economic agenda, vowing to deliver a “V-shaped” recovery as the nation continues to suffer amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

“The choice facing America is simple: It’s the choice between historic prosperity under my pro-American policies, or crippling poverty and a steep depression under the radical left,” Trump said.

“Under my continued leadership, we will continue our V-shaped recovery and launch a record-smashing economic boom,” he continued.

“We will end the pandemic with a safe and effective vaccine, create 10 million jobs in the first 10 months of 2021, and quickly return to full employment,” he added.

The economy was a central aspect of Trump’s election campaign back in 2016, and has become a main focus of the campaign this year, too.

After the coronavirus began ravaging its way through the nation last March, the economy was shut down, creating devastating losses in all sectors – especially small businesses.

But Trump’s new promise to create more jobs and less taxes for the middle class is aimed to help button up those losses and bring the economy back – and better than before.
