( – During his Sunday rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, former President Donald Trump, and the GOP’s presumptive Presidential nominee, appealed to blue-collar service industry workers by announcing a new campaign promise to end federal taxes on income earned through tips.

Trump revealed his new promise, stating “this is the first time” he mentioned this policy, but that when he returns to the Oval Office, his administration would ensure not to “charge taxes on tips.”

The former President suggested that he would implement the policy “right away” and that it would be the “first thing [we do] in office,” given that taxing tips had “been a point of contention for years.”

Besides being a critical battleground state in the 2024 Presidential election, Nevada is also a state that has a large working-class base relying on tip-related income. The state also has a large union base of hospitality workers. The former President’s appeal is a way to acquire their votes for Trump over President Joe Biden.

Trump continued to win over this voting block, telling his audience that they “do a great job of service” that is really “deserved.”

The former President suggested that since tips are income earned as a result of extra effort, he wanted to ensure those earning tips are rewarded, declaring that his administration wouldn’t go after tips for those in the service industry.

Trump highlighted that his promise to remove federal taxes from tipping was the “first time anyone’s brought it up.”

The former President made the breakthrough promises during his rally conducted in Las Vegas’ 100-degree heat but had made provisions to keep attendees cool and comfortable.
