Donald Trump Rallies for Tax Reform with Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp

3 Businesses That Could Be Hurt By Trump’s Tax Plan

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump will speak about tax reform at an oil refinery near North Dakota's capital city Bismarck.

Workers were changing a sign at the Mandan Refinery late Tuesday, reflecting the recent name change from Tesoro to Andeavor.

"Everybody's saying: What's she doing up here?" "I think it's important that America supports him, that our town supports him and that and just our country in general supports him", said Rory Schuh, Bismarck. John Hoeven will be traveling with the president Wednesday.

The White House has turned its focus to tax reform amid a packed legislative schedule on Capitol Hill, which must also reach an agreement to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling by the end of the month.

Trump stuck to well-practiced talking points when reporters were invited in for a portion of the meeting, repeating admonitions that the tax code should be "as simple as possible" and that a tax cut would produce "millions of new jobs". He said he'd be getting into "great detail" on the plan in the next two weeks.

While Trump last week said he hoped to bring the business tax rate down to 15%, that figure has been dismissed by congressional leaders on Capitol Hill as unrealistic.

He meets bipartisan House and Senate leadership at the White House for tax reform talks and then delivers remarks in North Dakota as part of a series of events prompting his tax cutting plan. "So it can happen".

Industry groups welcomed Trump to North Dakota Wednesday.

During his first tax speech last week in Missouri, the state's Democratic Sen. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you.

"I would love to see some lower corporate tax rates and a simplified plan for all Americans", Neset said.

Tax reform's passage is uncertain given that the Republican-controlled Congress wasn't even able to pass an Obamacare repeal, something that the party rallied around in previous elections.

Andy Peterson, president of the Greater North Dakota Chamber, said in a statement that the "current federal tax system is broken".

Trump's trip takes him to friendly territory: He won North Dakota by 36 points past year and has championed policies that benefit its energy sector. "This administration is pushing for the largest child tax credit possible", said Ivanka Trump at a forum at the Washington-based headquarters of Americans for Tax Reform. She thanked North Dakotans for their past support, noting, "you treated us very, very well in November".
