Southeast Missouri Republican Congressman Jason Smith’s office confirms that President Donald Trump is visiting Missouri on Wednesday to discuss taxes. The president will make a stop at the St. Charles Convention Center on Wednesday afternoon.
This is the president’s second visit to the Show-Me state since August to discuss tax reform. Senator Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, has been on several national talk shows in recent weeks touting the GOP tax legislation that he says will increase take home pay for workers.
Senator Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, opposes the plan and calls it a scam that benefits the wealthy and hurts the middle class and poor. During his August visit to Springfield, Trump took aim at McCaskill, who faces a key re-election race in 2018. He said McCaskill should support the GOP tax plan or Missourians should vote her out of office next year.
