North Dakota to be setting for Trump's 'aggressive' tax reform pitch

North Dakota to be setting for Trump's 'aggressive' tax reform pitch”

Donald Trump will speak at an oil refinery in Mandan, North Dakota today, touting his tax reform plan, including more tax cuts for America's largest corporations and fossil fuel giants.

Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin has said both he and the president would like to have a draft of tax reform before 2017 comes to a close.

Trump's appearance at the Andeavor refinery in Mandan, near the state's capital of Bismarck, was primarily to make the case for tax changes in Congress. Claire McCaskill stayed away.

Kylian Mbappe has confirmed reports of a summer meeting with Arsene Wenger and says joining Arsenal was "a real option" before he chose Paris Saint-Germain.

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says he plans to be with Trump Wednesday.

Behind the scenes, staffers in the House Ways and Means Committee have been fleshing out the bullet points laid out by the White House in its call for a lower corporate tax rate, lower income tax rates and policies aimed at encouraging American businesses to bring overseas profits back home.

Heitkamp is expected to face a tough challenge in next year's midterm elections. While she narrowly won the state in 2012, she is personally popular and has been careful to stake out policy positions that don't stray too far from the state's right-leaning electorate. "'The foundation of our job creation agenda is to fundamentally reform our tax code for the first time in more than 30 years'".

The White House did not release details to KX about whether the speech will be open to the public, or who else will be attending. In his remarks there, Trump urged people to vote her out of office if she did not support lowering taxes. Those that do pay, pay at just a 14 percent tax rate on average ― less than half the official rate and lower than many in the middle-class pay.

UK Factory Activity Gathers Pace In August
Efforts to reduce costs led many manufacturers to cut payroll jobs, but the pace of firings was the lowest in three months. At the same time, the survey detected a rise in business confidence to its highest level in three months.

The White House has turned its focus to tax reform amid a packed legislative schedule on Capitol Hill, which must also reach an agreement to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling by the end of the month. She thanked North Dakotans for their past support, noting, "you treated us very, very well in November".
