President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the administration is looking at possible tax cuts, but reiterated that the US economy is still growing and remains very far from a recession.

“Payroll tax is something that we think about and a lot of people would like to see that, and that very much affects the workers of our country,” Trump said, but cautioned that he’s “not looking to do anything at this moment” as it relates to those potential tax cuts.
