President Trump Set to Release Tax Reform Plan

In 1991, according to footage published by the New York Times, Trump testified before Congress about the law, where he derided the bill as an "absolute catastrophe".

Trump's pitch leaned heavily on the economic benefits he said tax reform could deliver and aimed to get ahead of Democratic criticism that Trump's tax reform plans would disproportionately benefit the wealthiest Americans, as independent tax experts have estimated.

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....

The speech, meant to shift Washington's focus from the failed overhaul of the Affordable Care Act to tax reform, is not expected to contain policy details. "I've talked in a lot of my town halls about my support for simplifying the tax code by cleaning out loopholes and goodies for special interests, and lowering the corporate tax rate - as long as we're doing it all through the lens of strengthening Missouri's working families".

There are two rates of corporation tax in the Republic of Ireland: 12.5% for trading income and 25% for non-trading income.

An official said Trump will discuss tax reform at a White House meeting next Tuesday with the "Big Six" tax reform negotiators: Mnuchin, Cohn, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican chairmen of two congressional tax committees. "Democrats believe that not one penny of tax cuts should go to the 1%".

Democrats have said they will not support a tax proposal that offers relief for the very wealthy.

Mitch Trubisky to play in Bears' preseason finale
Well, that will continue on Thursday, as Trubisky will start in the Bears' final preseason game against the Cleveland Browns . Cameron Meredith suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury in the Chicago Bears' 19-7 win over Tennessee on Sunday.

The notice from the White House does not specify if this is a public event.

"And I'm speaking against myself when I do this, I have to tell you", he said.

But Trump on Wednesday raised eyebrows when he thanked several members of his team by name and left Cohn - who traveled with Trump to Missouri on Wednesday - off the thank you list.

"Anybody I forgot?" Trump asked, before continuing with his speech.

Republicans quickly embraced Trump's pitch, vowing to work with the president to get a tax rewrite to his desk.

Furthermore, he said that his country had "massive trade deficits" with these countries but this was something he was going to fix.
