In a hilarious stunt that would have been perfect for Punkd, students were made to believe that President Trump’s tax plan was in fact Bernie Sanders’ masterpiece…..and they loved it!
Campus Reform media Director Cabot Phillips came on “Fox and Friends” to discuss interviews they conducted at George Washington University.
Fox News Insider reports that the students were all about the tax cuts for small businesses that Donald Trump created, when they were told that it was Bernie Sanders’ policy. One girl, whose family owns a small business, stated that her family would likely benefit from it.
Little did she the little anti-Trumper realize, she was actually agreeing with President Trump. HA.

Phillips said, “When they think the tax cuts are coming from a liberal candidate they’re suddenly compassionate, they’re wonderful, they’re beautiful, they’re common sense.”
Fox News Insider reports:
President Trump’s son, Don Jr., picked up on the story, tweeting the clip out to his 2 million followers on Sunday:
After being told the ideas were actually proposed by the Trump administration, some of the college kids admitted they would not have expected to agree with the president on anything.
“You got me. I’m happily surprised,” said a female student, who just moments before had called Trump’s tax plan “not beneficial to the general populace.”
Phillips said these interviews show how students are indoctrinated by the media and their professors and when they learn about conservative principles, they are not necessarily opposed.
