The current tax plan is a disaster and needs to be reformed for all Americans. President Donald J. Trump is committed to bringing historic tax relief to the American people based on four key ideas – cutting taxes for every day Americans, simplifying the tax code, giving business the competitive edge, and investing in America. Today, President Trump is traveling to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to deliver this message on tax reform to the American Trucker Association.

“TRUMP IS OVERWRITING OBAMA’S UNLAWFUL GREEN SCHEMES”

– Rich Lowry, New York Post

Rich Lowry in the New York Post writes on President Trump’s effort to roll back the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, which was imposed with “tendentious readings of the law and sweeping bureaucratic actions.” Lowry comments President Trump “has operated within constitutional lines better than his technocratic predecessor,” and the real problem with President Obama’s environmental plan is that it must not be instituted by “strained legal interpretations alone,” which it originally was, enough so that the Supreme Court blocked “its implementation pending all the lawsuits against it.” Furthermore, although President Obama’s Climate Action Plan was designed to have an impact on global warming, Lowry reports the most it would do is “reduce the global temperature by 15 one-thousands of a degree by 2100.” Lowry concludes that President Obama’s “impatience with Congress and his administrative imperiousness,” led to presumptuous polices, and “what he imposed unilaterally is subject to unilateral reversal.”

On tax reform, the Observer’s Peter Ferrara writes President Trump’s tax reform plan is “a large, even historic, pro-growth tax rate cut based on the same model as the enormously successful Kennedy and Reagan tax cuts,” and it is “historical facts, not opinion,” that President Trump’s plan will also “grow federal revenue.”

Regarding immigration, the editorial board of Investor’s Business Daily comments that President Trump’s 70-point immigration plan “leans heavily toward reinforcing the U.S. border against illegal crossings,” is “long overdue,” and the President is being “generous” for being open to legalizing the Dreamers while only asking Congress to “take the border seriously,” in return.

In religious liberty news, The Hill’s Jonathan Easley remarks “Trump’s presidency has been a triumph for the religious right,” as in the past week, the social conservatives faced three major gains focused on pro-life and religious freedom.

And The Associated Press reports on Ivanka Trump’s successful push to “get a family-focused tax credit included in the Republican tax overhaul proposal.” Ivanka has been busy meeting with lawmakers to gain support for the plan, stating the child tax credit will give families “the flexibility to make the best choices regarding their families’ care,” AP writes.

“TAX REFORM WILL GIVE WORKERS A RAISE”

– Lawrence Lindsey, The Wall Street Journal

 

Lawrence Lindsey, president and CEO of the Lindsey Group, writes in the The Wall Street Journal that if President Trump’s tax reform package passes through Congress, “we can expect economic growth to accelerate to roughly 3.2% for the next three to five years,” which history suggests will ultimately result in higher “real” wages for workers. The bill also encourages entrepreneurship and small-business formation, “the ultimate driver of productivity growth,” Lindsey remarks before commenting that a “rise in real wages” would “lead to the first sustained decline in income inequality in more than 40 years.” If the plan passes, “The American economy will finally start working in the interest of the great middle class and not simply those at the top,” Lindsey concludes.

On the tax reform push, Laura Olson of The Morning Call reports President Trump will pitch his tax plan to “roughly 1,000 people, including lots of truckers,” in Harrisburg, PA on Wednesday. The President plans to speak about how his plan “will benefit truckers by lowering their tax rates, boosting manufacturing, and making it easier for families to pass their trucking business onto their children,” Olson writes.

Regarding the need for a tax overhaul, U.S. Treasury Department Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Tony Sayegh writes in Wisconsin Business Voice that “it is time for lawmakers to put partisanship aside and come together to get our economy and wages growing at a much faster rate,” calling President Trump’s tax plan a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to put “America first.”

————

And in the Washington Examiner, Joseph Lawler reports President Trump’s tax reform plan looks to “increase the typical family’s earnings by $4,000,” an estimate that remains consistent with his argument that lowering the corporate tax rate and reforming corporate taxes will raise earnings for the American people.

In labor news, Andy Puzder, opinion contributor at The Hill, comments that the 16-year low unemployment rate of 4.2 percent is a result of President Trump’s deregulation efforts, which have led to “businesses across the country are [sic] hiring and more Americans are [sic] working better jobs for higher pay.”

From the battlefield to the home front
For veterans, the toughest part of a return to civilian life often comes at the very beginning. Veterans in their first year after service are particularly vulnerable to mental health risks but often do not receive adequate care:

  • Only 50 percent of returning service members who need mental health treatment seek it.
  • Veterans 3 to 12 months out of service are 3 times more likely to commit suicide than their active duty compatriots.
  • About 18.5 percent of veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or depression.

President Donald J. Trump believes veterans deserve the best healthcare in the world. Yesterday, he signed an order to support them during their transition from uniformed service to civilian life.

“We’re taking an unprecedented action today in that we will be covering all separating military members who are transitioning into civilian life — 100 percent of them — with the mental health benefit for 12 months,” Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin said.

 

See the message President Trump delivered to veterans yesterday.

 

‘A very successful’ immigration meeting
President Trump hosted both Democratic and Republican members of Congress in the Cabinet Room of the White House yesterday to talk immigration reform.

“The President just concluded what we felt was a very successful and productive bipartisan and bicameral meeting,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. “During the close-door session, the leadership agreed to negotiate and narrow the focus to four issues.”

Those issues:

  • Border security
  • Chain migration
  • The visa immigration lottery
  • DACA

Quote of the day: ‘Rural broadband is our duty to farmers’
In an op-ed for CNN, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue explains what the Trump Administration committed to doing for America’s farmers and rural citizens.

Secretary Perdue chaired the President’s task force to revive rural prosperity in America. The task force produced more than 100 recommendations, and organized around five key indicators: connectivity, quality of life, rural workforce, technological innovation, and economic development.

“Each recommendation intersects with and complements the others, but the task force found one overarching need: improved high-speed internet access,” he writes.

POTUS

President Trump held a meeting with his Cabinet. The President  then had lunch with Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

In the afternoon, the President welcomed Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway to the White House.

The two will participate in an expanded bilateral meeting and hold a joint press conference. Watch live at 3:20pm ET.

Later, the President and Vice President  met with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. The President  then met with the Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.

 

 

26 years later, a president hears rural America
On January 13, 1992, President George H. W. Bush spoke at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention in Kansas City, Missouri. Fresh off a 12-day trip to Asia, he talked about trade, security, and prosperity for rural America in the new global economy.

For more than a quarter-century, no American president returned to speak at the convention, which is a staple of the U.S. agriculture industry. Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump broke that trend.

Here is what he told the convention:

  • “We have been working every day to deliver for America’s farmers just as they work every day to deliver for us.”
  • Tax reform means that “American farmers will be able to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year you make the investment.”
  • “We are reviewing all of our trade agreements to make sure they are fair and reciprocal.”

The President signed two orders moments after he spoke, both of which act on the recommendation of his Agriculture and Rural Prosperity Task Force to expand access to broadband internet in rural America.

Read: “Our farmers deserve a government that serves their interest.”

 

The power of conservative voices
“I think from the conservative perspective, we accomplished more thanks to President Trump’s leadership than has been accomplished in more than a generation,” Vice President Mike Pence told Dana Loesch in an interview yesterday.

The Vice President covered a lot of ground with the conservative radio and television host. The two discussed the economy, infrastructure, North Korea, and what to expect from Republicans in 2018. Loesch also asked Vice President Pence about the state of political commentary during the Trump Administration.

“The reality is that great, strong . . . [conservative voices] have, while outnumbered, served to create a tremendous counterweight,” the Vice President said.

Tax reform: Where are we going?
Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett shares a simple message on tax reform: Wage growth in America has been much too slow for too long, but business tax reform offers a glimmer of hope.

Here is Dr. Hassett’s breakdown:

  • “Wage growth has been stagnant for much of the past two decades.”
  • “With the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act now enacted, America’s corporate tax position stands to encourage rather than discourage investment and therefore wage growth.”
  • What’s next? “The corporate income tax base stands to increase, allowing America’s tax rate to fall while revenues remain unchanged.”

POTUS DAY

President Trump  hosted a meeting with bipartisan members of the Senate about immigration. In the afternoon, the President  signed an Executive Order on “Supporting our Veterans during their Transition from Uniformed Service to Civilian Life.”

Later, the President met with Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

Vice President Mike Pence  travelled to the U.S. Capitol to participate in the Senate Republican Policy Lunch.

 

Rebuilding rural America
President Donald J. Trump travelled to Nashville, Tennessee, to deliver a major address at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Meeting. It marked the first time since 1992 an American president has spoken at the event.

That symbolism is important. From his earliest days on the campaign trail, President Trump has highlighted the difference in prosperity between rural America and the country’s wealthiest coastal enclaves.

One sentence explains why this message resonated across America’s interior. It comes from the opening lines of a report from President Trump’s Agriculture and Rural Prosperity Task Force, which the President will shared during his speech  “While other sectors of the American economy have largely recovered from the Great Recession, rural America has lagged in almost every indicator.”

 

Bonus read: President Trump stands with local communities against government overreach on land management.

 

Council of Economic Advisers: 2017 was a ‘banner year’
the President’s Council of Economic Advisers weighed in on why “2017 was a banner year for the United States labor market.”

In the Council’s own words:

  • “The economy added 2.1 million jobs and reversed job losses in critical sectors, most notably in manufacturing.
  • “Unemployment rates for America’s veterans, African-Americans, and Hispanics . . . reached historic lows in 2017.”
  • “The first wave of tax reform job and wage gains should produce continued tightness in the labor market and thus bigger take-home checks for workers.”

THE #WHITE HOUSE STEPS TOWARDS A DENUCLEARIZED NORTH KOREA.

President Trump Meets with Cabinet
Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump met with his Cabinet to discuss a range of pressing domestic and foreign policy issues. The President instituted a crucial step toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula by designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, announcing that the Treasury Department will be imposing “the highest level of sanctions” on Pyongyang over a two-week period.

The Cabinet meeting also focused on a range of domestic policy issues, including the historic tax cuts bill passed by the House of Representatives last week. “We’re going to give the American people a huge tax cut for Christmas,” said President Trump. “Hopefully that will be a great, big, beautiful Christmas present.”

If the bill becomes law, the United States would go from being “one of the highest-taxed nations in the world to one of the lowest-taxed.” Tax reform comes amid the Administration’s continued efforts to reduce government spending. “We’ll be submitting plans on health care, plans on infrastructure, and plans on welfare reform – which is desperately needed in our country – soon after taxes,” President Trump said.

Trump Administration Hard at Work on ‘the Crisis Next Door’
New data compiled by the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) reveals the opioid crisis in the United States is more severe than previously thought. Opioid-involved overdose deaths doubled in the past 10 years and quadrupled in the past 16 years, and drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death in the United States, outnumbering traffic crashes or gun-related deaths. President Trump has committed to deploying the tools of government to confront this intolerable epidemic head-on.

Learn more about the problem and the Trump Administration’s plan of attack here.

The White House Christmas Tree Has Arrived!
Yesterday afternoon, serenaded by Christmas carols, the National Christmas Tree Association presented the White House Christmas Tree to First Lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump at the North Portico.

#POTUS STUFF LATELY

President Trump continued a White House Thanksgiving tradition by pardoning the National Thanksgiving Turkey in a ceremony in the Rose Garden. The two turkeys chosen to come to Washington are fittingly named Drumstick and Wishbone. This year’s ceremony marks the 70th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation, which began with President Harry Truman in 1947.
