This Wednesday, President Donald Trump will be traveling to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for a speech on his tax reform plan, and will specifically be addressing truck drivers, praising them as the “lifeblood of our economy,” according to senior administration officials. Details reveal that the commander-in-chief will deliver a speech in front of 1,000 Pennsylvania workers, and will use the opportunity to highlight all the ways that the trucking industry will benefit from the GOP proposed tax plan.
“Trucking is the number one employer in about 29 states around the country. And truckers will be major beneficiaries of the president’s tax reform plan in several different ways,” said the president’s official.
“When your trucks are moving, America is growing. That is why my administration is taking historic steps to remove the barriers that slow you down. America first means putting American truckers first,” the POTUS is expected to say during his speech according to excerpts released by the White House.
But in addition to this, Trump will also make the case that the typical American family would receive a $4,000 pay raise under the tax plan.

In his tweet, he wrote that he was happy to announce the funding award for the city, and not long after he posted it, the positive feedback started pouring in from his conservative supporters and Republicans alike. But the excitement of the people didn’t come from the announcement about the Las Vegas funding, instead, it also came from the announcement that the POTUS will be delivering a speech in Pennsylvania, highlighting the importance of American truckers in a well-prepared tax reform speech.
As of right now, the list of topics that the commander-in-chief will be going through is unclear, but we can only wait and see what happens next.
