Report: Trump to visit Montana to promote tax reform

Posted: Updated:

President Donald Trump is expected to take his push for tax reform on the road over the next two months, and Montana is among 13 states that can expect a visit. 

According to a report on Bloomberg.com today, Trump, a Republican, is planning an aggressive road show to promote a tax overhaul.

The president wants to visit states he won where a Democratic senator is up for re-election next year. 

Trump won Montana by 20 points last fall, and Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., is up for election in 2018.

No timetable for the trips were given and details of the tax reform plan have not been revealed. The report did not mention which city in Montana might be on the docket. Trump visited Billings last year during the campaign.

Trump visited North Dakota last week to lobby for tax reform accompanied by Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp. 

The all-in strategy of the administration is in contrast to the failed efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Critics, including Republicans, argued that Trump hadn't made a strong enough push, which contributed to the failure of health-care reform this summer.
