MINNEAPOLIS — President Donald Trump is spending America’s tax filing day in Minnesota.
Trump arrived in Minneapolis on Monday and was headed to a trucking company in the suburb of Burnsville to host a roundtable discussion on the economy.
The president says the economy is doing well. He also says a package of corporate and individual tax cuts he signed into law in 2017 are “working very, very well.”
Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said Sunday the tax cuts added trillions of dollars to the nation’s debt and disproportionately helped the wealthy.
Trump’s tax day visit also renews attention on his refusal to release his tax returns.
Trump narrowly lost Minnesota to Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 but hopes to claim victory here in 2020.
