Wed, Oct 11, 2017: Trump promotes tax reform plan in Pennsylvania speech

President Donald Trump attempted to fire up middle-class Americans about the prospects of a retooled tax code during the latest stop in his tax reform tour Wednesday evening.

And despite mounting criticism from independent analysts and Democrats who say the latest GOP-led tax reform push appears to be geared toward the country’s wealthiest rather than its average citizens, Trump reiterated during his remarks in Pennsylvania that his goal is to make life easier for the middle class.

“Our country and our economy cannot take off like they should unless we transform America’s outdated, complex and extremely burdensome tax code,” Trump said. “It’s a middle-class bill. That’s what we’re thinking of. That’s what I want.”
