Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump hit out once more at his likely Democratic Presidential rival Hillary Clinton, saying that she is pressuring the media to report on a “false narrative” regarding his tax proposals.

“Why does the media, with a strong push from Crooked Hillary, keep pushing the false narrative that I want to raise taxes. Exactly opposite!” Trump tweeted.

The accusation comes after Trump intimated in interviews over the weekend that he plans to raise taxes for wealthy Americans.

However, he stated Monday that the wealthy would still be subject to a lower tax rate than they are currently, but that it would be higher than 25 percent.

“If I increase it on the wealthy, they’re still going to pay less than they pay now,” Trump said in a CNN interview Monday, adding “I’m not talking about increasing from this point. I’m talking about increasing from my tax proposal.”

Hillary’s attack dogs were tasked with bashing Trump’s tax policy Monday, putting out the talking point that it will only benefit the most wealthy Americans, a charge Clinton has consistently leveled at Trump.

“This is the most risky, reckless and regressive tax proposal ever put forward by any major presidential candidate,” Gene Sperling, the former director of the National Economic Council, told reporters on a conference call, which included top Clinton policy adviser Jake Sullivan.

Trump also lashed out at the Clinton campaign for suggesting that during the primaries Hillary received millions more votes than Trump.

The billionaire candidate noted that she was only competing against one other person, while he was up against 17 people.

Trump also noted that when all is said and done, he will still set a record for the number of votes in a GOP primary, despite being up against multiple candidates.

The Clinton campaign is set to ramp up attacks on Trump with a prominent Pro-Clinton Super-PAC confirming that it will spend close to $100 million on a barrage of ads in the coming weeks.

Guy Cecil, the head of Priorities USA, said that the ads will not consist of personal attacks on Trump, because “The way to beat Donald Trump is not to become him, is not to get in the mud constantly.”
