Here is President Trumps speech from Indianapolis on his new tax proposal. 9/27/2017 President Trump unveils details of a new tax plan that he says will bring tax relief to the working Americans, spur job growth and reform the tax code. Trump discusses the details of his party’s plan that would cut taxes for individuals and corporations, simplify the tax system and nearly double the standard deduction used by most Americans.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: My fellow Americans,
The heartbreaking devastation and suffering caused by Hurricane Harvey has profoundly affected our entire nation. Many homes and communities have been destroyed, many lives have been upended, and tragically, some have lost their lives in this catastrophic storm.
We pray for the victims and their families—and all of those who have been displaced from their homes.
At this very moment, heroic efforts continue to keep safe those threatened by this natural disaster.
I want to say a special word of thanks to our amazing first responders—our police and law enforcement officers, firefighters, Coast Guard, National Guard, EMS, doctors, nurses, hospital workers, and volunteers who have traveled from all across the country. Thousands of people have come together to prevent loss of life and ensure safety, and we are incredibly grateful for their courage, their professionalism, and their sacrifice.
They are an inspiration to all of us.
To the people affected by Hurricane Harvey: we are with you every single step of the way. We will help you recover. We will help you rebuild. We will support you today, tomorrow, and the day after.
We have been working closely with local authorities, and I remain in close communication with Governor Abbott of Texas and Governor Edwards of Louisiana.
At the request of Governor Abbott, I declared a major disaster in the State of Texas to ensure that federal aid is available for state and local recovery efforts. I also approved a disaster declaration for Louisiana.
Organizations like the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and faith-based organizations are actively assisting on the ground and they are doing a fantastic job. I want to recognize the millions of citizens across the country who are contributing in every way they can—with their time, their resources, and their prayers.
When one part of America hurts, we all hurt. When we see neighbors in need, we rush to their aid. We don’t ask their names or where they are from—we help our fellow Americans every single time.
This is the spirit of America. It is exactly what I saw while in Texas this week—a spirit of love, determination, and resolve. A spirit, that even when wounded, never gives up—never gives in—never loses hope. We just keep fighting—we just keep pushing on, for the people we love, and for the nation we call home.
All American hearts are with the people of Texas and Louisiana. We mourn and pray and struggle through the hardships—together.
We know that a long and difficult path lies ahead to get our neighbors back in their homes and on their feet. But we also know that we are stronger than the obstacles in our path. Arm-in-arm, we will strive, we will endure, and we will emerge stronger than ever before.
Thank you. God Bless You. And God Bless the United States of America.
President Donald Trump delivered remarks calling for bipartisan tax reform in Springfield, MO.
Roger Stone, a former Trump campaign advisor and personal friend of the President says if Congress impeaches Donald Trump, there will be all-out Civil War in the U.S.
“The people who are calling for impeachment are the people who didn’t vote for him. They need to get over it,” Stone said to TMZ in an airport baggage claim.
“They lost. Theire candidate had every advantage: They spent two billion dollars, we spent $275 million. Sorry, we whipped their ass. It is over. You lost.”
He added, warning: “Try to impeach him. Just try it. You will have a spasm of violence –an insurrection– in this country like you have never seen before… Both sides are heavily armed, my friend.”
“This is not 1974,” Stone, who worked in the White House during Nixon’s resignation, added. “People will not stand for [impeachment of President Trump]. Any politician who votes for it would be endangering their own life.”
He explained: “There will be violence on both sides. Let me make this clear: “I’m not advocating violence, I am predicting [violence].”
Asked if he is saying that Trump’s removal from office would lead to a Civil War, Stone said: “Yes, that is what I think will happen.”
