Trump, in Missouri, lays groundwork for tax overhaul; offers few details

President Donald Trump listens in the Roosevelt Room of the White House Wednesday Aug. 2 2017 where his advisers reportedly often scramble to reshape policy to catch up with Trump's tweets and public declarations

President Trump speaks to a crowd in Missouri about his tax reform plans and his confidence that Congress will pass "pro-American tax reform".

President Trump delivering his speech on tax reform in Springfield, Mo., Aug. 30, 2017.

"Our tax system should benefit loyal hard-working Americans and their families", Trump said, promising "to work with Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike" on the matter and claiming that his tax reform plans are bipartisan. He believes the United States needs to "dramatically" simplify its tax code - ensuring most people can do their own taxes at home on a single form without the use of an accountant.

The White House's stated goal is to adopt tax reform by the end of the year, but that's a tall task both technically and politically.

His administration is pushing for a simpler tax code and lower rates, but it has said it will leave the details of the proposal to Congress.

"I don't want to be disappointed by Congress". Do you understand me?

The American people are well aware that Trump would sign all of these bills on Obamacare, on taxes, on infrastructure, and on the wall.

All I want to do is MAGA (Make America Great Again), Trump added with the slogan of his presidential campaign.

His appeal hearing is set for Tuesday in NY . "I wouldn't do "a what if" on that, " said Jones of the possible results of the process.

The United States tax system hasn't been rewritten since the mid-1980's.

President Donald Trump will kick off his lobbying effort for a tax overhaul at an event in Missouri, with a manufacturing backdrop and some economic tough talk.

Instead, Trump focused on his overall "vision" for fostering job creation and economic growth by cutting rates and overhauling the tax code. And that really means buying product ideally made in this country, but that means they'll go out, and they'll spend their money.

He spoke in broad strokes, saying that it was a "monumental thing that happened" when Ronald Reagan authorized lowering the corporate tax rate to 34 percent in 1986.

"We must reduce the tax burdens on our companies and our workers", he insisted. He said that she had to support tax cuts and said if she opposed them, "you have to vote her out of office".

Trump's speech framed the proposed tax cuts as a boon to middle-class workers like the Loren Cook employees who attended the speech.

"But it would make us highly competitive".

If President Trump chooses to continue with his quarrel with legislatures like the case of McConnell, that could harm his effort to rewrite the tax code.
