President Trump to visit North Dakota Wednesday

President Trump to visit North Dakota Wednesday

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he's with farmers and ranchers in North Dakota "100 percent" as they cope with a deep drought, but said nothing about the state's request for a presidential disaster declaration.

Trump has identified tax reform as his next top legislative priority, and congressional leaders have been developing to introduce now that the summer recess is over. Both Heitkamp and North Dakota Republican Sen.

Organizers think they have an opportunity to make Trump's tax reform push as radioactive as GOP health care legislation with the right message.

Watch live in the video above.

Heitkamp has not said she supports Trump's plan, only that the small business owners, energy industry workers, farmers and parents in her state are eager for changes to a tax code they believe is broken. He said he'd be getting into "great detail" on the plan in the next two weeks. "We have one demand: Not one penny in tax cuts go to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations".

Trump is hoping to gain Democratic support for a proposal that most likely will revolve around slashing tax rates paid by businesses to try to make the US more globally competitive.

On Sunday, Trump wrote an opinion article on tax reform that appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel with an eye toward pressuring Sen.

Heitkamp's office confirmed she would join Trump for his speech, but a Heitkamp aide said the senator will not speak at the event.

According to a report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, when taking out various deductions and tax breaks for corporations, the United States ranked fourth among G-20 countries in effective corporate tax rates - what countries actually pay. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you. AP is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information.

Trump's trip takes him to friendly territory: He won North Dakota by 36 points past year and has championed policies that benefit its energy sector. She knows which side her political bread is buttered on, but the move has gone over like a lead balloon among Heitkamp's fellow Democrats.

"You listening, Heidi?" he joked, as he looked at Heitkamp.
