President Donald Trump will kick off a campaign to overhaul U.S. tax policy next week with a visit to Missouri, according to an administration official familiar with the plans.
The trip Wednesday to the state’s southwestern city of Springfield was expected to be the first of several presidential stops around the country in the coming weeks, said the official, who asked not to be identified because the details of the trip are still under review. Missouri is an increasingly Republican state that embraced Trump last November and a place where Democrats face a crucial U.S. Senate challenge next year.
The president is not expected to set forth his own plan or many specifics, the official said. Instead, Trump sees his role as leading a public campaign to rally support as a group of House, Senate and administration officials seek to develop a unified approach.
