Trump Tax Reform Roundtable Veers Toward Race for Manchin's Senate Seat

Trump Tax Reform Roundtable Veers Toward Race for Manchin's Senate Seat

The president made his remarks during a visit to West Virginia to discuss tax cuts and his future agenda for the country.

The victor in the primary this fall will face Sen.

President Trump did not state a preference for Jenkins or Morrisey, only telling the audience to "go out and vote" in next month's primary.

"Anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One, adding that "we'll probably keep them or a large portion of them" in place until an anti-migration wall is built on the border.

Finishing his opening remarks, Trump noted that he had gone off script. John Manchin telling a West Virginia business roundtable the vulnerable Democrat has "voted against tax cuts" and other policies.

President Trump is heading Thursday to West Virginia, the state that voted for him by the largest margin in the 2016 election. "And yesterday it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody's ever seen before".

Manchin has been a leader in helping get health care for sufferers of black lung, an affliction that strikes coal miners, and voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act.

"He also voted against medical help and healthcare", Trump said, referring to eliminating the Obamacare individual mandate that was repealed a year ago in tax-reform legislation.

Mr. Trump's support in West Virginia was 61 percent in January - higher than any other state, according to Gallup.

To be sure, Trump praised his tax cut plan, especially during a question-and-answer session with officials gathered in White Sulphur Springs. "Millions and millions of people". He said they have helped revived the economy and allowed Americans to keep more of their money.

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. Ultimately, it will be up to the four border-state governors to finalize the numbers and precise timing.

Nielsen says she'll be speaking again Thursday with California Gov.

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.

In a tweet, the president credits "the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them".

As he has done before, Trump conjured images of violence and suffering when he described the perils of illegal immigration, though statistics show that immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than citizens.
