Gov. Phil Murphy Fires Back at Trump’s 2020 Budget Tweet

Governor Phil Murphy responded to a tweet from President Donald Trump, which congratulated the NJ Legislature for passing the 2020 budget without a millionaire's tax included. Murphy said on Twitter that while Trump is fighting for millionaires like himself, Murphy is fighting for NJ's middle class and those working to get there.

Governor Phil Murphy shot back at President Donald J. Trump’s tweet, which offered congratulations for the absence of a millionaire’s tax in the NJ 2020 budget, this afternoon via Twitter.

“We all know is fighting for millionaires like himself. I’m fighting for New Jersey’s middle class and all those working to get there,” Murphy tweeted.

The governor’s remark came on the heels of the president tweeting congratulations to the Democratic legislature that forced the governor to sign a FY2020 budget that did not contain the millionaire’s tax he craved.

    Phony Phil, if you were fighting for the middle class, you would be cutting taxes for everybody and addressing the property tax crisis in the state. Instead, you’re trying to build Progressive cred for your next move, which isn’t happening because you got your butt kicked by Sweeney and Caughlin. So as you sit in your mansion, probably in your “California Cave,” drinking a wimpy Budweiser, start looking for your next career.
