President Trump kicked off his administration’s effort to pass tax reform sometime this year.
Speaking from a manufacturing plant in Springfield, Missouri Wednesday afternoon he said his administration wants to work with Congress on a plan that is pro-jobs, pro-workers, and pro-America.
The president noted the country’s current tax code cost Americans millions of jobs, and regulations need to be cut back immediately.
He said the country deserves a tax code that is fair and simple to understand, which means getting rid of loopholes that only help the wealthiest Americans.
The president also noted that as the home of Route 66, Springfield was the perfect place for him to launch America’s comeback.
