President Trump on Thursday met with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about tax reform, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said, as the White House enters its “first stages” of tackling the issue.
Trump has said he wants to shift his focus to tax reform after efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare stalled. The president’s goal is cutting taxes for businesses and middle-class families.
Mnuchin, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and others in the White House “have been meeting with and hearing from stakeholders on all sides of the tax-reform debate,” Spicer said.
Trump and his advisers “will continue to meet with those who support and oppose the various the policy options as they all sit on the table,because the president is committed to delivering results that the American people and American businesses will be able to see and feel in their paychecks,” he added.
