WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump is promoting his tax overhaul pitch on a visit Wednesday to North Dakota.
On Twitter Wednesday, Trump says he’ll “discuss tax reform and tax cuts.” He adds: “we are the highest taxed nation in the world — that will change.”
The president, who has offered few specifics on the plan, met with Republican congressional leaders Tuesday to discuss the tax efforts. Trump and congressional Republicans say they want to simplify the tax code, lowering the rate for corporations from the current 15-35 percent range, and bringing relief for the middle class.
At a rally near Bismarck, Trump is expected to promote the plan as a bipartisan opportunity. He’ll be joined by North Dakota’s Democratic senator, Heidi Heitkamp, who’s traveling with Trump on Air Force One.
