Trump pushes tax overhaul to ‘bring back Main Street’
SPRINGFIELD, MO. » President Donald Trump launched his fall push to overhaul the nation’s tax system by pledging Wednesday that the details-to-come plan would “bring back Main Street” by reducing the crushing tax burden on middle-class Americans, making a populist appeal for a proposal expected to heavily benefit corporate America.
Trump said his vision for rewriting the tax system, a key campaign pledge, would unlock stronger economic growth and benefit companies and workers alike. He promised it would be “pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-worker and pro-American.”
Trump dangled the prospect of the “biggest ever” tax cut, warning that without it, “jobs in our country cannot take off the way they should. And it could be much worse than that.”
Trump opened his tax overhaul pitch at a manufacturing plant in Springfield, Missouri, a community known as the birthplace of Route 66.
