Trump pitches tax overhaul effort in North Dakota

  • Trump woos Democrat with trip on Air Force One

A liberal group is running a television ad on Wednesday in North Dakota urging the state's senators to oppose tax cuts for the wealthy as President Trump visits the state to push for a tax-code overhaul.

Ivanka Trump says she'd like to see the child tax credit at least double from its current level of $1,000 to $2,000. "But I tell you what, good woman, and I think we'll have your support and I hope we'll have your support".

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp traveled with the president aboard Air Force One to an oil refinery in Mandan, where Trump was trying to build support for a tax overhaul.

The White House tax goals released in April include repealing the estate tax.

Trump stuck to well-practiced talking points when reporters were invited in for a portion of the meeting, repeating admonitions that the tax code should be "as simple as possible" and that a tax cut would produce "millions of new jobs".

"Any time a president comes to North Dakota, it's a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for a better future for our businesses and our families", Heitkamp said in last week's statement. "And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office", Trump said last week. "So it can happen".




"If Democrats don't want to bring back your jobs, raise your pay and help America win - voters should deliver a clear message: Do your job to deliver for America, or find a new job", he said.

Trump intends to talk about the business climate in North Dakota and hold it up as a model for the country.

"The top issue before the American people before Congress this fall is dramatic, pro-growth tax reform. We need to get the economy growing again and that's what the president focused on".

It is his second such speech in two weeks, following one he made in Missouri last week. Claire McCaskill stayed away. And the president will frame his plan as beneficial to everyday workers, even though it also includes large tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, as well as corporations.

THE FACTS: Trump has complained before about tax burdens in the United States. Heitkamp is among 10 Democrats in states Trump carried who are up for re-election in 2018. "He isn't showing up in his previous year to check a box". Also joining the president were Republican Sen.
