Democratic Senators Issue Statements After Meeting Trump For Tax Reform Dinner

A group of Democratic senators say they had a good conversation with President Trump about tax reform.

Democrats Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota attended the bipartisan dinner at the White House last night.

Manchin said the meeting was productive and there were areas of agreement between the two sides.

He vowed to fight for a simpler tax code and lower tax rates, but added that he doesn’t want to add to the national debt.

Heitkamp echoed that sentiment, saying any tax reform bill must support working families, farmers and retirees.

Donnelly said tax reform measures need to support companies that invest in American workers.

The democrats were joined by three senior Republicans at Tuesday’s meeting.
