Given the position title and description, I thought it was going to be similar to a job experience I had prior and thoroughly enjoyed; hence, I was excited and confident to jump in.Now, 5 months later, I find I have not used a fraction of my education.

Speaking to reporters after a campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, Trump said Republicans Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin are working on developing a "major tax cut for middle income people" in the coming weeks. "If we do that, it will be sometime just prior, I would say, to November," Trump said.
