Trump Speech on Tax Reform in Missouri

Open this

"We must lower our taxes", Trump said.

"We just come in a couple days ahead of time and sell to people so they don't have to stand in line at rallies and not get the merchandise that they want".

The venue has significance to Trump's pledge to American workers, the White House said.

The president's two top advisers on tax reform will be with him at the speech: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, who are helping to guide the tax reform debate on Capitol Hill.

The government has been bumping up against the almost $20 trillion debt ceiling for months, and the Treasury Department has been using "extraordinary measures" to keep from breaching it.

While the President has been clear about tax cuts that benefit high-income households and large corporations, he's revealed far less about how his plan would affect middle-income Americans.

The Trump administration outlined the broad strokes of its proposal for tax reform in April, proposing slashing the number of tax brackets from seven to three and bringing the corporate tax rate down to 15%. But they also worry that Trump's ideas may only help the wealthy. "And I don't want to be disappointed by Congress, do you understand me?"

"Enormous complexity is unfair", the president said.

The US tax code has not been modified significantly since 1986, despite numerous efforts.

Republicans hope to achieve tax reform by the end of the year, but reaching agreement on the details will be tough, analysts say.
