Speaking at a campaign rally in Sioux City, Iowa on Thursday evening, Donald Trump urged the crowd not to leave any inheritance to children that they don’t like, telling the crowd that “some of us have horrible children.”
Trump was campaigning for incumbent GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley and Gov. Kim Reynolds when he began discussing tax policy.
Trump claimed he “virtually eliminated” the estate tax, which he also referred to as the “death tax.”
“So that now, when you pass away, you can leave — if you like your child, I always say, if you don’t like, leave it to charity,” Trump, a father of five, said.
“Some of us have horrible children,” Trump said.
“Do you have horrible children?” he asked the rally attendees. “Does anybody have, like a child, where you really are not going to leave your farm?”
It’s unclear if Trump was suggesting that he will leave some of his children out of an inheritance. However, as noted by Raw Story, his comments came the same day MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin said that “Trump’s new lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James could be designed to keep secret his succession plan.”
