See that at the end? That’s the 17 percent increase Trump’s talking about. There’s nothing all that striking about it in context, especially when you consider the decline in homicide in major cities since President Obama took office and the steep drop from 1991. Statistics are from the FBI, and the chart is from The Washington Post.

Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton calls for a “massive tax increase,” but that’s only for a very wealthy income bracket. Her plan basically keeps the current tax brackets but adds a 4 percent surtax on income over $5 million. She also calls to add “The Buffett Rule” which creates a minimum effective tax rate of 30 percent for people who make more than a million dollars a year.
Compare that to Trump’s tax plan, which would essentially create a new tax system with four different brackets from rates of 0 percent to just 25 percent.
