Trump: ‘I have no interest in selling this place to somebody’
On Tuesday, the president will unveil his tax plan, which would cut the corporate rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, lower the estate tax and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
In addition, he plans to slash the corporate tax rate to 15 percent and the estate rate to 35 percent.
“I have to tell you, I have no intent on selling thisplace to somebody,” Trump said in a Friday night speech.
“This is a place where I’ve had tremendous success and where I want to make sure we have a tremendous success in the future.
I think we have to be very aggressive in terms of bringing back jobs, in terms.
It has to be a high-tech sector and a high tech industry.”
On Saturday, Trump said he was looking for ways to make the U.S. a high cost-of-living country.
“The tax code needs to be simplified, simplified, and simplified,” he said.
“You’re talking about millions of dollars, you’re talking of millions of new jobs.”
He also said the tax code should not be complicated and should be simpler, but he also said that was something he would do in his first 100 days.
“We’ll see what happens, and we’ll see where that takes us,” Trump added.
