Trump On Tax Reform: If We Can Do Things In A Bipartisan Matter, That Would Be Great

REPORTER: Mr. President, some conservatives are skeptical of this new approach with Democrats. What would you tell them? Why have Leader Pelosi and Senator Schumer over tonight? What’s your message for skeptical conservatives?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I’m conservative and, I will tell you, I’m not skeptical. And I think that if we can do things in a bipartisan manner, that will be great.

Now, it might not work out, in which case, we’ll try and do them without. But I think if we can do, in a bipartisan manner — if you look at some of the greatest legislation ever passed, it was done on a bipartisan manner. And so that’s why we’re going to give it a shot. Right, Tom? And we’ll see what we can do. And if it works out, great. And if it doesn’t work out, great. Hopefully we’ll be able to do it anyways — Republicans.

Okay? Thank you.

QUESTION: (Inaudible) 15 percent corporate tax rate with a bipartisan —

THE PRESIDENT: We’re looking at a 15 percent rate. And we want a 15 percent rate because that would bring us low — not by any means the lowest — but it would bring us to a level where China and other countries are. And we will be able to compete with anybody. Nobody will be able to touch us. So we would like to see 15 percent.

Thank you very much everybody.

And, by the way, lower for individuals — much lower than that for individuals. And the rich will not be gaining at all with this plan. We’re looking for the middle class, and we’re looking for jobs. Jobs, meaning companies. So we’re looking at the middle class and we’re looking at jobs.

QUESTION: Will the wealthy have to accept higher taxes —

THE PRESIDENT: I think the wealthy will be pretty much where they are — pretty much where they are. If we can do that, we’d like it. If they have to go higher, they’ll go higher, frankly. We’re looking at the middle class and we’re looking at jobs.
