Taxes, energy among top concerns for Trump in North Dakota speech

Herman and his wife, Marcia, are among the small business owners Rep. Kevin Cramer invited to hear Trump speak. Nor do most economists say that Trump's presence at the White House has suddenly caused growth to accelerate as he suggested in the speech.

Trump was visiting friendly territory: He won North Dakota by 36 points past year and has championed policies that benefit its energy sector.

Heitkamp is one of several Democratic senators who is up for reelection next year in a state that Trump won, and the White House views her as a Democrat who could back the president's tax efforts.

State officials, in addition to North Dakota's Congressional delegation, will attend the speech in Mandan, North Dakota. "We need to see if we can do better".

Trump's address will be given at an oil refinery in Mandan, N.D., across the river from Bismarck.

"We're going to cut taxes", Trump vowed during a Roosevelt Room meeting with the so-called Big Six tax negotiators - National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the leaders of the congressional tax-writing committees.

"The U.S. tax code is bloated, cumbersome and long overdue for reform", Burgum said in a statement. During a rally stop in Springfield, Missouri last week, Trump said he hopes to slash the corporate tax rate to 15% and aims to cut the tax rate for middle-income Americans.

That is because Heitkamp will be a special guest in Trump's traveling delegation, jetting with him from Washington aboard Air Force One in what the White House is trumpeting as the first indication of bipartisan support for overhauling the tax code.

"I'm optimistic about it because this is something we have to get done".

"Fixing it requires ideas from both sides of the aisle and a genuine commitment to working together", Oversen said.

'She wanted to make the trip, she said, "Dad can I go?"' the president began. Heidi Heitkamp when he pitched his tax reform plan in her home state North Dakota. The White House is also targeting Sen.

"Hopefully, he remembers the biofuels and the heartland and all that agriculture has to offer", Klosterman said.

He described the North Dakota elected officials, including Mrs. Heitkamp, as "fantastic leaders who share this goal with us".

But she said Trump has proposed policies "that would hurt North Dakota's economy", such as cutting crop insurance.
