President Trump answers GOP critics, pledges ‘phenomenal’ tax reform plan coming soon

Amid criticism from conservatives that he was not giving enough attention to some campaign promises, President Donald Trump promised a “phenomenal” tax reform package would soon be unveiled.

Speaking with airline executives at the White House on Thursday, the president promised reforms to “roll back burdensome regulations” for the airline industry and a round of tax cuts to relieve American businesses.

“Lowering the overall tax burden on American business is big league, that’s coming along very well,” Trump said. “We’re way ahead of schedule, I believe. And we’re going to be announcing something — I would say over the next two or three weeks — that will be phenomenal.”

The president addressed the challenges the airline industry faces with regulatory burdens and “obsolete” equipment.

“We want to help you realize these goals by rolling back burdensome regulations, and you people are regulated probably as much as almost anybody,” Trump said, speaking to the CEOs of Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Southwest. “We have a regulatory morass that’s a disaster.”

“Our airports used to be the best,” he said. “Now they’re at the bottom of the rung. We spent six trillion on the Middle East and we got nothing. And we have an obsolete plane system, obsolete trains and bad roads. We are going to change all of that. You are going to be so happy with Trump. I think you already are.”

The president’s own pilot apparently filled him on the government’s use of  the “wrong type of equipment” at airports.

“My pilot, he is a smart guy, and he knows what’s going on, he said the government is using the wrong equipment and instituting a massive multi-billion dollar project using the wrong type of equipment,” Trump said. “So let’s find out about that. We want the traveling public to have the best customer service. Airports are very important to me. Travel is very important to me.”

Trump supporters were happy with the news and applauded the announcement on Twitter.
