Missouri will be the first stop of many for Trump's tax tour in the coming weeks. "And if she doesn't do this for you, you have to vote her out of office".

If a lower US tax rate on foreign profits encouraged USA corporations to move investments offshore, it could hurt US workers' wages and productivity.

Key questions remain. For instance, Trump said in April he wants to lower the tax rate on businesses to 15 percent, but it is unclear if this rate will remain or ultimately be revised upward.

"The president wants to take this conversation directly to the American people", the official said.

Invoking the populist language that fueled his campaign, Trump said America's working class would be the ultimate beneficiary.

President Trump on Wednesday will pressure Congress to pass a sweeping package of tax cuts by year's end, but he is not planning to advance a specific plan....

Trump made the pitch during a speech promoting his administration's tax agenda, which is still lacking in any significant detail.

Schumer says Republicans shouldn't use "fuzzy math or brazenly partisan estimates" to claim their tax plan wouldn't add to deficits.

According to a White House release, the president will arrive aboard Air Force One at Springfield-Branson National Airport at 12:55 p.m.

Cohn said he had chose to remain at the White House and administration officials have said he has remained focused on the tax reform push.

President Donald Trump is pushing for tax code that is simple, fair and easy to understand. Households in the middle fifth would lose an average of $1,500 once the costs of paying for the Trump tax cuts are counted.

The economy has been bright spot for Trump's troubled presidency, with unemployment rates falling and growth rates reaching their fastest clip in over two years.

Tax reform efforts have been overshadowed by news about Hurricane Harvey, as well as Trump's controversies involving the pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an alleged feud with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and comments about violence in Charlottesville, Va.
