President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, Trump began to brag about his tax cuts, saying it was the "biggest tax cut in the history of our country." In actuality, it's smaller than many in the past. His tax cut was .9% of GDP, which was smaller than Reagan's 1981 tax cut of 2.89. While Trump's tax cut was the eight largest since 1981, it was still smaller than two tax cuts passed under the Obama administration.
