Trump Promises to Eliminate Taxes on Casino Tips at Vegas Rally

At a scorching Las Vegas campaign rally on Sunday, Donald Trump proposed eliminating IRS taxes on tips.

“When I take office, we will abolish taxes on tips,” Trump declared to thousands of supporters gathered at Sunset Park, where temperatures soared to 103°F.

“This will be one of my first actions in office,” he continued.

Trump’s remarks resonated with his audience, as the casino industry is the largest employer in Las Vegas, supporting approximately 300,000 jobs according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Both Trump and his likely Democratic opponent, President Joe Biden, are focusing on mobilizing voters in Nevada and other key swing states ahead of the November 5 election.

Trump’s speech followed a high-profile fundraiser hosted by local construction magnate Don Ahern, where tickets reached up to $844,600 per couple.

Although Nevada has voted Democratic in the last four presidential elections, the 2020 race was closely contested, with Biden winning by just two points.

Culinary Workers Respond

Less than an hour after Trump’s announcement, the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165, which represent 60,000 casino resort workers in Las Vegas and Reno, issued a strong rebuke.

This rally marked Trump’s first public appearance since his recent conviction on 34 felony counts in his New York hush-money trial.
