House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans Thursday in a speech in Cambridge, Massachusetts, defending her comments about middle-class Americans getting “crumbs” from the Trump tax cut law.
Pelosi is under fire for saying that a $1,000 bonus for a worker handed out by his or her company after the tax cuts amounts to “crumbs.”
Pelosi defended her comments in a Trump-themed town hall in Cambridge, Massachusetts, sponsored in part by the Not One Penny campaign.
“There’s some tax advantage in the beginning for families and that’s their enticement while they give banquets to the high end, to the top one percent and corporate America,” Pelosi said.
“When I say ‘crumbs,’ they mock me in ads for saying — compared to the banquet they get at the high end,” Pelosi said.
