Trump 'celebrating' tax day in Minnesota

  • Trump en route to the Twin Cities for tax event

"We promised that these tax cuts would be rocket fuel for the American economy and we were absolutely right", Trump said.

"We are giving them a big attractive Christmas present in the form of a tremendous tax cut", said President Trump in 2017.

The president's trip to Minnesota is also significant given that he lost the state, which is a traditional Democratic stronghold, by just two points in 2016.

"It is quite a bit earlier than it was mainly due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which reduced federal tax liability quite a bit", Pomerleau said.

According to the IRS, more than 103.5 million tax returns have been submitted as of April 5, a figure virtually unchanged from the same point a year ago. But history would appear to be against him: Minnesota has not voted for a Republican for president since Richard Nixon in 1972.

Trump was joined at the roundtable by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Minnesota Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, small business owners from Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Florida and others.

Trump bucked decades of presidential tradition by declining to show voters his tax filings, both as a candidate and as president.

She believes his tax plan gives tax breaks to the wealthy, saying that money could be put toward fixing roads and bridges along with making broadband available to all Americans. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll last week showed that most Americans didn't think they even got a tax cut. The average tax refund for state residents is up 2 percent.

Further muddling the picture was the federal deduction for state and local taxes being capped at $10,000, which has mattered in high-tax states such as Minnesota, California and NY, among others.

"The fire that they're having at the Notre Dame Cathedral is something like few have witnessed", he said, adding that the church was "one of the great treasures of the world".
