Trump touts tax cuts in White Sulphur Springs

In what was his second visit to the Mountain State in less than four months, the President took part in a roundtable event focused on tax reform at the White Sulphur Springs Civic Center.

U. S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito, U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins, WV Governor Jim Justice, and WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey are all scheduled to attend the roundtable event.

Trump's words echoed a speech Vice President Mike Pence delivered several weeks ago, also in Greenbrier County, in which he attacked Manchin for voting against the tax package.

As he wrapped up his immigration remarks, Trump held up a copy of his prepared speech.

The Pentagon said officials had not yet determined how many troops would be deployed to support border security operations. Joe Manchin, a Democrat who has expressed openness to working with the White House, for opposing the GOP tax plan.

This was President Trumps's fourth visit to West Virginia.

"He votes against everything and he voted against our tax cuts, and that was bad", Trump said, eliciting faint boos from the audience. Hugh Hitchcock, who works at the Davis Trust Company in Elkins, said he was able to give his employees a raise as a result of the tax cuts. Among them: "What will the 200,000 West Virginians do when they lose health care coverage. Millions and millions of people".

While Trump went off script, the attendees -an assemblage of state politicians, local business owners, workers and families - stayed dutifully on task, talking about how the tax cuts have helped them.

"So you're going to have a chance to get a senator that's going to vote our program", he added, referring to the upcoming election.

President Donald Trump is praising the Mexican government for breaking up a "caravan" of Central American migrants and avoiding "a giant scene" at the USA border.

"They cut people up, because a bullet is too quick", Trump said of MS-13. The president has been tweeting about the caravan all week and had warned Mexico to interdict it before the migrants arrived at the border.

That's according to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Trump has seized on news reports that the migrant group was traveling toward the U.S. Organizers of the migrant group said they never meant to reach the U.S. border.

President Donald Trump has signed a proclamation directing the deployment of the National Guard to the U.S. -Mexico border to fight illegal immigration and drug smuggling.
