Trump argued that the rest of the world subsequently lowering their tax rates demanded more corporate tax cuts in the United States. Yet, he's consistently promised to help the middle class: in his inaugural address, for example, he said that "every decision" on taxes will "be made to benefit American workers and American families".

President Donald Trump hit the road to sell tax reform to voters and lawmakers Wednesday, a major campaign pledge that remains short on detail and a long way from becoming law.

The speech, meant to shift Washington's focus from the failed overhaul of the Affordable Care Act to tax reform, is not expected to contain policy details.

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

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

But Trump's mission on Wednesday, administration officials said, was to frame the debate, not lay out a detailed proposal. Claire McCaskill, have said they're open to certain tax reforms.


"I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities", Cohn told the Financial Times in a striking rebuke of a president by one of his top advisers. Despite traveling with the president to the event, Cohn, the former COO of Goldman Sachs, was not mentioned at any point in the speech, despite his efforts in the White House to promote tax reform.

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

The praise for the 1986 bill marks a reversal for Trump, who was previously heavily critical.

While the current Trump tax plan largely mirrors his campaign plan, one big change is its proposal for a "territorial" tax system, which would exempt the foreign profits of us multinational corporations from USA taxes.

Furthermore, he said that his country had "massive trade deficits" with these countries but this was something he was going to fix.

"President Trump has challenged Congress to reduce the burden on the American worker and to build an economy that rewards honest work", Hawley wrote.
