Trump Set to Advocate Tax Cuts

Written by Joe Scudder

Donald Trump is getting ready for a national tour to advocate tax cuts and help motivate Congress.

While Republicans are known to advocate tax cuts, they were also known for promising to repeal Obamacare. President Trump obviously does not want to see a replay of that disaster when it comes to lowering taxes. So, he has a busy schedule to advocate tax cuts and energize his base to pressure their representatives to get it done.

Bloomberg reports, “Trump Plans Aggressive Road Show to Sell Tax Overhaul.

President Donald Trump plans an aggressive travel schedule, taking him to as many as 13 states over the next seven weeks, to sell the idea of a tax overhaul as the administration tries to avoid repeating the communications failures of its attempt to repeal Obamacare.

With a make-or-break legislative battle looming on taxes, the White House is moving to clean up a disorganized communications operation, said four people familiar with the effort.

The strategy was revealed by top advisers to about 40 allies during a closed-door meeting last week. It calls for the president to visit states he won where a Democratic senator is up for re-election next year, including Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Montana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, said three people who attended. The people asked not to be identified discussing internal strategy.

In some instances, cabinet members will be deployed behind Trump in a “second wave” after the president’s speeches and town hall meetings to amplify his message.

[…]

The administration plans to mount the full-bore sales campaign even though congressional Republicans and the White House haven’t yet determined key elements of the plan, including tax brackets for individuals, a corporate tax rate, what popular tax advantages will be eliminated or even whether the changes will be permanent or temporary. It’s unclear when additional details will emerge.
