Trump Targets Fat ‘Sloppy’ Dem Governor

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – In a new perfectly justified outburst against the left, former President Donald Trump directed criticism toward “sloppy” Illinois Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker, who is emerging as a prominent figure within the Democratic Party.

Pritzker has governed Illinois during a period marked by significant population decline, The Daily Wire stresses in a report.

Having taken office in January 2019, Pritzker has witnessed over 142,000 residents leave Illinois between July 2021 and July 2022.

During this interval, only New York experienced a more rapid decrease in population.

Trump expressed his disapproval on his Truth Social site, stating:

“Sloppy J.B. Pritzker, the Rotund Governor from the once great State of Illinois, who makes Chris Christie look like a male model, and whose family wanted him out of the business because he was so pathetic at helping them run it, has presided over the destruction and disintegration of Illinois at levels never seen before in any State. Crime is rampant and people are, sadly, fleeing Illinois. Unless a change is made at the Governor’s level, Illinois can never be Great Again.”

Governor Pritzker has proposed a substantial $52.7 billion spending plan for 2025, which necessitates substantial tax increases estimated at $898 million.

Illinois currently ranks as the state with the second-highest corporate income tax rate in the nation.

He also intends to modify the cap on net operating losses in Illinois, which would increase the tax burden on financially struggling companies, according to Bryce Hill, Director of Fiscal and Economic Research with the Illinois Policy Institute.

“Retailers now retain 1.75% of the sales taxes for collecting and sending them to the government, so long as they properly file and pay their applicable sales taxes by their due dates. Under Pritzker’s proposal, the value of this tax credit would be capped at $1,000 per month,” Hill elaborated.

He also noted that Pritzker’s proposal would “effectively raise taxes by $186 million on retailers.”

Furthermore, Hill emphasized that the 2025 budget plan contains “a hidden $93 million income tax hike on individuals.”

“He will get that money by shortchanging the inflation adjustment to the state’s standard income tax exemption. … the state’s current standard exemption for tax year 2024 is set at $2,775 per income taxpayer and dependent. Pritzker wants to reduce this exemption to $2,550 per income taxpayer and dependent – a change that would only account for one years’ worth of inflation adjustments instead of the two taxpayers are due,” Hill elaborated.
