It’s becoming apparent that the most prominent source of “Fake News” in America is the President’s own Twitter account.
Today President Donald Trump Tweeted about his upcoming trip to North Dakota in order to discuss tax reform and tax cuts.
The President also claimed that the U.S. is “the highest taxed nation in the world.”
Will be going to North Dakota today to discuss tax reform and tax cuts. We are the highest taxed nation in the world – that will change.

As you can imagine, this is complete rubbish.
The most taxed nation on earth is Aruba, a constituent member of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, located in the Caribbean. Citizens there pay 58.95% income tax.
Aruba is followed closely by Sweden, where people pay 56.6% tax. Then it’s Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Japan, the UK, Finland and Ireland.
The U.S. pays the 23rd highest tax rate in the world according to data compiled by the OECD in 2015.
So there you have it, more blatant misinformation from the worst President we’ve ever had.
