President Donald Trump will head to Harrisburg, Pa., on Wednesday to speak to a handpicked crowd of truckers, state lawmakers and manufacturers regarding his much anticipated tax reform plan.

Roughly 1,000 individuals were invited to attend the speech, which will take place inside a hangar at an Air National Guard base and feature actual trucks surrounding the president. PennLlive.com reported.

The president is expected to use the platform to address his proposal of eliminating the estate tax, which he and some congressional Republicans claim will provide relief for small business owners, as the tax causes “hell” and forces them out of business, the Hill reported.

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner to talk tax reform at bipartisan dinner

  Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner to talk tax reform at bipartisan dinner Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are hosting another bipartisan dinner at their Kalorama home Monday evening, a source familiar with the dinner confirmed to CNN Monday. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp and Claire McCaskill, as well as Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Pat Toomey, are expected to attend.

Trump also will likely introduce people in the crowd as living examples to illustrate his view that the estate tax negatively affects families, PennLive.com reported.

However, the Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation argues abolishing the estate tax, also known as the “death tax,” would mainly benefit the wealthy, as only 0.2 percent of Americans pay estate tax. One-percenters pay 27 percent of the total, the Hill reported.

Trump also will devote a significant portion of his speech to truckers, a “major beneficiary” of the tax plan, which proposes to lower the corporate tax rate to around 20 percent, although Trump hopes to see that number at 15 percent, a senior White House official told PennLive.com.

The tax alleviation would also allow manufacturers to spend more on production, thus providing truckers with more driving opportunities.
