President Trump encouraged an audience in Springfield, Missouri to vote out Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, who is seeking another term in 2018, if she does not support his upcoming tax reform proposal.
"Over the past 30 years, the average business tax rate among developed nations fell from 45% to less than 24%, and some countries have an unbelievably low tax, including, by the way, China and some others that are highly competitive and really doing very well against us," Trump said.
"They are taking us, frankly, to the cleaners," the president said. "So we must, we have no choice, we must lower our taxes. And your Senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you. And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office."
"She's going to make that commitment," he said. "She's got to make that commitment. If she doesn't do it, we just can't do this anymore with the obstruction and the obstructionists. If we don't get tax cuts and reform approved, potentially the biggest ever, we're looking for the biggest ever, jobs in our country can not take off the way they should."
Trump said Democrats will try to obstruct tax reform like they have done with administration appointments and health care.
"The Dems are looking to obstruct tax cuts and tax reform just like they obstructed so many other things including administration appointments and health care. Not one vote. We got not one vote to try and fix health care," Trump said.
