"Losing? People who thought that getting a tax cut would mean a bigger tax refund", Romans explained.

The tax cut is increasing the federal debt.

President Donald Trump delivers remarks during an event in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, April 12, 2019, in Washington.

Tax Day also comes this year amid an ongoing battle for the president's tax returns. To make matters worse, Trump is trying to pay for his tax cuts for the rich by gutting Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to the tune of over one trillion dollars and slashing funds for our classrooms.

Along with Klobuchar were Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter and State Auditor Julie Blaha. "The truth is, Donald Trump is a rich businessman using the presidency and his tax bill to make money for himself and his rich friends".

While the president seeks to leverage Tax Day to highlight his own economic policies, a recent poll found that most Americans don't believe they've directly benefited from the Republican tax bill. In Alabama, residents owed about 24 percent less in federal taxes. According to the IRS, as of March 29 the average refund nationally was $2,893, which was just $20 more than at the same point last tax season. While the average filer was better off, it said, they weren't seeing it in their refunds, "which many people think of as their "bottom line'".

Along with discussions on taxes, trade and the economy, Trump also expressed his shock and sadness for the massive fire that was devastating the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - calling the blaze something "that is beyond country, it's beyond everything".
