Trump to Stump in Harrisburg for Lower Taxes
Donald Trump is set to return to Pennsylvania this week.
The president will reportedly rally for tax reform in Harrisburg on Wednesday as part of a road tour announced by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week.
Details on the event, including a venue and time, have not yet been set. The White House reportedly plans to release information soon.
We’re wondering if U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, a key player in Trump’s push for tax reform, will make an appearance. Last month, the president invited the senator to discuss efforts over a White House dinner (which reportedly included breaded veal and pie). Toomey called the conversation “constructive.”
Just finished a constructive, bipartisan meeting at the White House on #TaxReform. I'm optimistic we'll find a way to get this done.

Meanwhile, the state’s GOP candidates, like Pa. senator and gubernatorial hopeful Scott Wagner and U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, who’s hoping to replace U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, say their support for the president is strengthening.
This will be Trump’s second trip to Harrisburg since his inauguration in January. He last visited the city in April, when he celebrated his first 100 days in office.
