During his speech on tax reform in Springfield, Missouri this afternoon, President Donald Trump implored Missouri voters to get rid of their incumbent Democratic senator if she didn’t go along with his administration’s tax plan.
After claiming that America’s tax rates for businesses are not competitive on the world stage, and stating that China is “taking us to the cleaners,” Trump then took aim at Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO).
“So we must — we have no choice,” the president exclaimed. “We must lower our taxes. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you, and if she doesn’t do it for you, you have to vote her out of office.”
After the crowd cheered, Trump continued, saying the Missouri lawmaker must “make that commitment” while also describing Democrats as “obstructionists” who are preventing jobs from taking off.
