Heitkamp, Cramer plan to join Trump in North Dakota

Heitkamp, Cramer plan to join Trump in North Dakota”

The state's other USA senator, John Hoeven, and its lone House member, Kevin Cramer, both Republicans, also are scheduled to travel with Trump aboard Air Force One.

Heitkamp is among 10 Democrats in states Trump carried who are up for re-election in 2018.

"Will be going to North Dakota today to discuss tax reform and tax cuts", the president tweeted. "If Democrats continue their obstruction - if they don't want to bring back your jobs, raise your pay, and help America win - voters should deliver a clear message: Do your job to deliver for America or find a new job".

On Friday, Heitkamp said both parties need to work together on tax reform, which she views as critical for businesses and families in her state. "And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office", Trump said last week. In advance of the event, Trump took to Twitter to outline why he believes an overhaul of the tax code is necessary.

By this measure, the U.S. actually has the fourth-lowest tax burden of any OECD country, with only South Korea, Chile, and Mexico ranking lower.

But in a nod to Heitkamp, a vulnerable Democrat running for reelection, Trump will say that North Dakota's energy boom, "is a reminder of what can happen when we promote American jobs instead of obstructing them". While she narrowly won the state in 2012, she is personally popular and has been careful to stake out policy positions that don't stray too far from the state's right-leaning electorate.

On the statutory corporate tax rate, or what the government has on the books as the business tax rate, Trump is correct when it comes to developed nations. "Now more than ever, I hope President Trump uses this visit to address the kitchen-table issues that keep the North Dakotans I've met with across the state this past month up at night".

But the most comprehensive measure by which to judge Trump's claim, combining corporate and individual taxes paid, is tax burden as a percentage of gross domestic product. Her only would-be opponent thus far, Republican state Sen.

Trump will renew his push for an bipartisan overhaul, while singling out Democrats who might stand in his way.
