Trump Starts Tax Reform Push With Threats, Few Details

Springfield Police Department Releases Statement About the President's Visit

In his bid to restore US competitiveness in the global economy, President Donald Trump announced his proposals for tax reform before a crowd in Springfield, Missouri this week, arguing that the American people (and particularly American businesses) are overtaxed.

In Springfield, Missouri, President Trump will deliver a speech on his administration's goals for a major tax overhaul.

Trump has had McCaskill in his sights, just days ago tweeting that a Republican "will win" the election there because McCaskill is "opposed to big tax cuts".

"So let's put, or at least try to put, the partisan posturing behind us and come together as Americans", Trump said, going on to declare that his tax overhaul plan - which he called "The American Model" - will create "millions and millions" of new jobs, bring back "trillions of dollars in wealth that's parked overseas" and give the United States a "competitive edge" in world markets.

White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn said last week that Congress, not the president, is taking the lead on crafting the actual tax reform legislation.

Trump officially started his push for tax reform with a speech in Missouri that mostly stuck to broad strokes and avoided any policy details. "And I don't want to be disappointed by Congress".

"They've been the forgotten people, but they're not forgotten anymore, I'll tell you that".

"This is an area on which I'm optimistic President Trump and I will find common ground", she said in a statement to the Washington Post over the weekend. "I think Congress is gonna make a comeback, I hope so".

VW engineer sentence for role in emissions fraud
Prosecutors in Germany are engaging in their own probe, though it is not clear if Liang could face additional penalties there. Liang's lawyer said the VW engineer is too old and slight to serve alongside risky felons in a low-security federal prison.

Donald Trump once said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his supporters would still love him.

Trump made no mention of how the tax plan will affect the wealthiest Americans like himself.

The House GOP tax plan also looks to increase competitiveness by eliminating certain loopholes and discouraging businesses from keeping money overseas, the speaker said.

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

He said "one by one we're fixing it". "They'll keep their money, they'll spend their money, they'll buy our product", the president said Wednesday.

"Second, we need a competitive tax code that creates more jobs and higher wages for Americans", said Trump. "Not one vote. We got not one vote to try and fix health care", Trump said. "Instead of trying to benefit themselves, Trump and Republicans should work with Democrats to enact real, bipartisan tax reform for the middle class". The administration has tasked the congressional committees in charge of taxes with formulating a detailed plan.

Republicans have been vocal advocates for tax reform over the years. "We want American companies to hire here and make things here".
