WATCH LIVE: President Trump Pitches Tax Plan to Truckers in Pennsylvania

President Donald Trump continues his sales pitch for his administration’s tax reform proposal as he makes his way to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to deliver remarks on the plan. The event will take place at 5:45 PM ET and will feature a backdrop of big rigs as the president will cast the proposal as being extremely beneficial to truckers.

In an excerpt released by the White House, Trump will say that “[n]othing gets done in America without the hardworking men and women of the trucking industry,” adding that when their “trucks are moving, America is growing. ‘America first’ means putting American truckers first.”

With experts and analysts stating that the tax plan will not provide much of a benefit to the middle class while providing large tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy, the president will reportedly claim that the average American household will see their wages go up by $4,000 in this new plan.

“We will eliminate the penalty on returning future earnings back to the United States. And we will impose a one-time low tax on money currently parked overseas so it can be brought back home to America – where it belongs,” Trump will say, according to an excerpt shared with reporters.
