Trump Touts Tax Reform, Pressures Democrats in Speech

The president also called for lowering taxes for middle income Americans and helping parents afford child care, but did not provide specific details on how his tax plan would account for such policies.

Trump said he wants to work with Congress to reform the tax code for the first time in 30 years.

In an official taxpayer-funded White House trip to Missouri President Donald Trump told his audience to vote out of office Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill if she refuses to support his tax cuts.

Away in Springfield, Missouri, President Donald Trump sprung up efforts to sell a big tax package to voters yesterday.

"They made their taxes lower - and far lower, in many cases, than ours - and jobs left our country".

US President Donald Trump described the new tax reforms as "globally competitive", and said that they would bring back trillions of dollars stacked overseas.

"This is our once in a generation opportunity to deliver real tax reform for everyday, hardworking Americans", Trump said.

Trump says Mexico will pay for the wall ''one way or another''
The Foreign Ministry's statement left out the fact that the USA has relied heavily on Mexican aid in the recent past. Trump said at a rally last week in Phoenix that he would "end up probably terminating" NAFTA "at some point".

"I don't want to be disappointed by Congress, do you understand me?"

Trump called it "a pay raise Americans have been looking for, for many, many years".

"I think Congress is going to make a comeback, I hope so", Mr. Trump said.

Trump said his administration is embracing a new economic model.

His plan is to bring businesses back to the united states by exporting our goods and not our jobs.

The proposal has already come under fire from Democrats in Congress, who have long advocated higher taxes for wealthy Americans and have argued that tax reform would disproportionately benefit the rich.

They get it because they've been taken. "We must reduce the tax rate on American businesses so they keep jobs in America, create jobs in America and compete for workers right here in America - the America we love".

Ryan doesn't think government shutdown is 'necessary' over border funding
During his tirade, Trump labeled Democrats as "obstructionists" who are more interested in playing politics than working with him. The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Index both fell Wednesday following Trump's threats, while gold futures rose.

Some of the companies that have left the U.S. for Ireland might make the decision to come back, he said.

The current rate in the United States is 35%, but President Trump has pledged to reduce that to 15%.

Trump's speech framed the proposed tax cuts as a boon to middle-class workers like the Loren Cook employees who attended the speech.

TRUMP: So we must, we have no choice, we must lower our taxes.

They also would pare repatriation taxes so companies can "return trillions and trillions of dollars to our economy".

"But it would make us highly competitive".
