Trump Could Save Social Security Through Economic Growth, Spending Cuts: Gaetz

At a Team Trump event in Keene, New Hampshire, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) told The Epoch Times that former President Donald J. Trump could address the looming projected insolvency of the Social Security Trust Fund in large part by stimulating the economy.

“She has a hit on Social Security, and she wants to raise the age very substantially. You don’t need that. We don’t want to do that. And we have that liquid gold. We don’t have to do that to our seniors. You earned it,” President Trump said in New Hampshire.
