Patriotic Millionaire Abigail Disney has spoken out strongly against inequality. She famously said that even Jesus does not deserve to earn 500 times that of the median worker. She has said that President Trump's tax cuts for the richest 1% are a travesty and are fueling greater inequality in the US. In this interview with Winnie, Abigail speaks about what drives her to be a ‘traitor to my class’ and come together with other rich people in the United States as one of the Patriotic Millionaires. The Patriotic Millionaires are a brilliant campaign group that is calling for higher taxes on the rich, an end to the political influence of extreme wealth, and decent living wages for workers, all as a way to fight inequality.
