President Trump Touts Tax Bill During Minnesota Visit

Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Charles Rettig testifies on his agency's budget before a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill

Pomerleau said Democrats have been spinning tax payers' expectations ever since President Trump's tax cut passed Congress at the end of 2017.

"We promised that these tax cuts would be rocket fuel for the American economy and we were absolutely right", Trump said.

"You're got a very prosperous America, with low unemployment", the president said at Nuss Truck and Equipment.

The president showed the audience a printout of the New York Times article during a roundtable discussion in Minnesota to promote its success in boosting the economy.

"It is quite a bit earlier than it was mainly due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which reduced federal tax liability quite a bit", Pomerleau said.

"Democrats have taken parts of the tax law that are base-broadening ー and that may increase taxes for a small minority of taxpayers ー and made that central to the message", Pomerleau said. He said weekly earnings are up and more people are working and prospering. He claimed his tax cuts are the largest in US history, but the facts show otherwise.

While the president seeks to leverage Tax Day to highlight his own economic policies, a recent poll found that most Americans don't believe they've directly benefited from the Republican tax bill.

The Minnesota senator released her 2018 tax return Monday. And there's something to their gut instinct: The top 1 percent of income earners received an average tax cut of $51,310 past year, or more than $900 per week, the Tax Policy Center said in its analysis.

The president's personal lawyers sent a new letter to Treasury Department on Monday to make the case that the IRS should not hand over the president's tax return information, saying the request is unconstitutional.

The president's trip to Minnesota is also significant given that he lost the state, which is a traditional Democratic stronghold, by just two points in 2016. In fact, no Republican presidential candidate has won Minnesota since Nixon.

Political analyst Blois Olsen says Trump is focused on Minnesota because he loves to win, and this is a state he nearly won.
