President Trump, “This is the last year for a long, complicated tax return.”
President Donald Trump is in Hialeah, Florida promoting the GOP tax refroms, highlighting improvements in Hispanic unemployment rates in the predominantly Latino Miami suburb.
Speaking a day before the personal income tax filing deadline, President Trump says “This is the last time you’re going to fill out that long, complicated, horrible return.”
He says next year, once the tax law is fully implemented, filing a federal return will be “simple and easy to do.”
President Trump says the country is “starting to really rock” with businesses coming back to the country and corporations facing fewer regulations.
He also praised his new national security adviser, John Bolton, for Friday’s air strikes in Syria. As the crowd applauded, he joked, “Are you giving him all the credit? You know that means the end of his job.”
President Trump held a roundtable with local business owners in the Miami area, joined by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Small Business Administration head Linda McMahon.
Republicans are placing their midterm election hopes on selling the benefits of the new tax law to Americans.
President Trump will host Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his Florida club this week.
