Trump to push tax overhaul this weekPosted: Updated:
President Donald Trump plans to make a public push to overhaul the nation's tax system this week in Springfield, Missouri.
The White House says the president will be making the stop in southwest Missouri on Wednesday to begin selling his administration's calls to change the tax system. Administration officials have said Trump plans to hold events around the country in the coming weeks to promote the tax overhaul.
The White House has expressed hope that the changes can be approved in Congress by the end of the year and will be working with the leaders of congressional tax-writing committees after the Labor Day holiday.
Administration officials have said that lowering personal and business tax rates will lead to millions of new jobs and spur faster economic growth.
Trump will travel to hurricane-ravaged Texas on Tuesday.
