President Trump visits Springfield, Mo. to speak about tax reform

31 August 2017

And he's calling on Congress to work with him.

Tax reform efforts have been overshadowed by news about Hurricane Harvey, as well as Trump's controversies involving the pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an alleged feud with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and comments about violence in Charlottesville, Va.

President Donald Trump hits the road on Wednesday on a tour to sell tax reform to everyday Americans and lawmakers, but this campaign pledge is still very short on details.

After more than seven months in power, Trump and Republican leaders who control both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives are still far from agreement on a tax package, leading some market analysts to lower expectations for changes this year.

The White House is dodging questions about the details, which will decide the plan's fate.

Trump will speak about tax reform at the Loren Cook Company, which makes ventilation equipment.

Trump's daughter wants tax code reform to help make it easier for working mothers to pay for childcare.

But Trump's mission on Wednesday, administration officials said, was to frame the debate, not lay out a detailed proposal. A White House official said Trump would again address the disaster during his tax reform remarks.

"And I'm speaking against myself when I do this, I have to tell you", he said.

But he also injected the official White House event with a purely political message aimed at Missouri Democratic Sen.

"Anybody I forget?" Trump said, before moving on with his speech.

"This includes helping parents afford child care and the cost of raising a family", Trump said, adding that the issue was important to his daughter, Ivanka.

Pascrell also floated the possibility that Trump's global business empire might benefit from his tax plan, though no one can know "until the President releases his tax returns" - a step Trump has refused to take.

Further, as we've explained, we estimate that the annual tax cuts for the 400 highest-income families would average roughly $15 million each from two Trump tax plan provisions alone.

"Trump's massive tax cut is a slam dunk for the American people", Lewandowski wrote in The Hill.
