WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration is not considering a temporary payroll tax cut at this time, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said on Tuesday.

“It’s not being considered at this time but he’s looking at all options out there to try and give people back so much of the hard earned money they’ve made,” Gidley said, pushing back against a Washington Post report that the idea was being considered to boost the U.S. economy.
