I was under the impression that he would veto it if it didn't provide the wealthiest Americans with a tax cut.

Isn't this exactly why we elected him? I don't have a lot of money right now but by the time his tax cuts come through I expect to be a millionaire. The Carrier plant is hiring and I am gonna put in some serious overtime.

Both are acceptable, depending on context.

He then said "And Trump won't veto a healthcare bill, even if it strips 20 million Americans of their coverage."

I thought it was Trump will veto the tax bill unless it provides a tax cut for wealthiest Americans.

When a middle class American is given the choice of a small tax cut along with a large tax cut for wealthy Americans or no tax cut for anyone, the choice will always be for the low tax cut for the middle class with a large tax cut for the wealthy.  A third option, a substantial tax cut for the middle class and no tax cut for the wealthy, is never presented as an option and the middle class assumes they are powerless to demand it.

Even if? That is and will be the primary motivating factor for any tax bill that's passed. Everything else is a secondary concern for the GOP at this point.

It doesn't help that the media fails to explain that small tax cut for middle class, and large tax cut for the wealthy, are paid by spending cuts that directly and indirectly benefit the middle class.
