In an op-ed for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Sept. 3, Trump wrote: “In 1986, Ronald Reagan cut our business tax rate to 34 percent, well below the average rate of other developed nations at the time. It worked. Our economy boomed, the middle class thrived and median family income increased.” PolitiFact Wisconsin tests the claim’s validity.
