Former President Donald Trump pledged he will never cut Social Security if elected again to the White House in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News here earlier in December.
“We’re not cutting Social Security,” Trump said. “It’s very simple. It’s a simple answer. We’re not cutting Social Security.”
Trump’s interview with Breitbart News came earlier in December at his Miami golf course, Trump National Doral.
Social Security, which was developed as part of the New Deal by then-President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the aftermath of the Great Depression, is a very simple program that guarantees Americans who hit retirement age certain income. Throughout the course of their lives, the federal government garnishes Americans’ wages—taking a cut of their paychecks—on the promise that at the end of their lives they will get a check on the regular so they can retire and live out the rest of their lives.
