Trump calls on Congress to accelerate Tax reform legislation

14 Septembre 2017

The president, eager to pass his big-ticket agenda items such as tax reform and an infrastructure package, seems to have reacted well to positive news coverage that came out of his deal with Schumer and Pelosi last week, and is now attempting to carry over any momentum built by the deal.

"Move fast Congress!" Trump had dinner Tuesday with a group of Republican and Democratic senators to talk taxes.

The deal announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner would enshrine protections for the almost 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. "Would you be willing to negotiate with all of them?" a reporter asked the president in late June.

And while I'm all for candidates having detailed understandings of major issues, it's pretty easy in this case to cut the Wisconsin Democrat some slack - because the GOP tax plan he's unfamiliar with doesn't yet exist.

As Trump continues to seek Democratic input on the tax front, he was set to meet on Wednesday afternoon at the White House with House members, including eight Democrats and five Republicans.

Having failed to see through his promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act by partnering with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, Trump is turning to Democrats for help as he seeks what has so far been an elusive first legislative victory for a man who styles himself as a master dealmaker.

Trump rescinded that order, saying it exceeded presidential powers, but has given Congress six months to come up with a legislative replacement.

The City Fire and Rescue Department said they received information on the blaze at around 5.41am. The bodies, on the other hand, have been moved to a nearby hospital, officials said.

"We want a 15 percent rate because that would bring us low-not by any means the lowest, but it would bring us to a level where China and other countries are", the president said. Critics, including Republicans, argued that Trump hadn't made a strong enough push, which contributed to the failure of health-care reform this summer.

It was not immediately clear what exactly was agreed to on Wednesday night, besides the details included in the Democrats' initial statement.

Gottheimer said he "raised the importance" of the deduction with Trump on Wednesday.

"I think he needs to reach out to Democrats on all these big issues, and hopefully generate some bipartisan support".

Trump last week blindsided Republican leaders by striking a deal with Schumer and Pelosi on the USA debt limit and federal spending for three months, and also spoke to them about how to resolve the fate of 800,000 young adults brought into the United States illegally as children, the so-called Dreamers.

Trump dined Tuesday night with several Republican and Democratic senators to discuss tax reform.

Trump said "we'll probably also be talking about DACA" at his meeting with bipartisan representatives "because we don't want to forget DACA". "So I got my fork and I just got the end, I said, well we're going to find out", he said.
