They blame the individual giving decline to Trump’s Tax Cuts but I’m not sure that is where the blame should be. It seems to me that Americans who got a Tax cut seem not to realize it due to the Media coverage. I think the perception of the Tax Cut is more to blame than the Tax Cut itself. If the Tax Cut was to blame then Corporations would have also had been down. Corporations who are more immune to the Mainstream Media’s narrative than everyday Americans realized they had more money to spend and part of that went to help those in need.
