I'm Going To Ask Congress For Tax Reform 'Speed-Up' Because Of Irma

I'm Going To Ask Congress For Tax Reform 'Speed-Up' Because Of Irma”

President Donald Trump headed to Camp David Friday for a Cabinet meeting and updates on Hurricane Irma. I ask everyone in the storm's path to be vigilant and to heed all recommendations from government officials and law enforcement.

"(A) group that really deserves tremendous credit is the United States Coast Guard", Trump said, standing next to first lady Melania Trump. "Just get out of its way".

He said Irma will "cost a lot of money" but that he's most concerned at this point with saving lives. We're the highest anywhere in the world right now.

Hurricane Irma is set to make landfall on Saturday across most of Florida, and the storm is predicted to be devastating.

Le Château des Palmiers, as the house is called, has been the market for $16.9 million (the asking price was dropped from $28 million in August), and the listing includes a heated pool, fitness center, bar and billiards area, and tennis court, all positioned on a white sand beach on Plum Bay.

"This is going to be a long recovery, hurricane response" with widespread power outages, Duke told CNN. He thanked FEMA and the Homeland Security Department, which oversees the agency, for their efforts, and encouraged officials to also stay focused on the post-Harvey recovery.

A week after his visit to Houston, Texas, to meet Hurricane Harvey survivors, President Donald Trump said he's planning a trip to Florida, which is being ravaged by Hurricane Irma.

Trump also spoke by phone Sunday morning with the governors of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, Sanders said.

The Cabinet meeting Saturday afternoon with be the president's fourth since taking office.

The president and first lady Melania Trump invited each member of the Cabinet and their spouses to the retreat.

Trump said the USA was grieving for those who were killed by Irma even before she reached the US mainland.

The path of the storm, tracking the west coast of Florida, meant it might be less destructive than it would otherwise have been, Trump said, noting the next five or six hours would be critical. So we need to simplify the tax code, reduce taxes very substantially on the middle class.

Mnuchin elicited hisses when he urged the meeting of House Republicans to "vote for the debt ceiling for me", said Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C. "We'll be there with resources and support, both to save lives and to help to recover and rebuild these states and these communities". "We will do it quickly".
