Have you benefited from the Republican tax cut? He claimed that 80 percent of Americans received a tax break this year, whether they noticed or not.

President Donald Trump was headed to Minnesota Monday morning to visit a Burnsville truck and equipment company for a roundtable discussion on tax cuts and the USA economy.

"The metro was hard for us in 2018, but we're confident that the second congressional district, the third congressional district, we can get these seats back", said Carnahan. "The truth is, Donald Trump is a rich businessman using the presidency and his tax bill to make money for himself and his rich friends".

He also says a package of corporate and individual tax cuts he signed into law in 2017 are "working very, very well".
