About 700 invite-only guests to hear Trump speak in ND

What do we know about Trump's tax plan so far? The White House is also targeting Sen. So it's hard to say how much tax relief he would offer.

Heitkamp is one of several Democratic senators who is up for reelection next year in a state that Trump won, and the White House views her as a Democrat who could back the president's tax efforts.

"It really creates an obstacle in keeping family-owned ranches and farms intact following the death of a loved one", Ellingson said. "We are the highest taxed nation in the world - that will change".

State officials, in addition to North Dakota's Congressional delegation, will attend the speech in Mandan, North Dakota.

Trump will be touting his tax plan at the Andeavor oil refinery in Heitkamp's hometown of Mandan, just outside of Bismarck, the state capital.

"I'm absolutely thrilled, impressed and am looking forward to meeting him", Neset said.

Speaking alongside relevant cabinet officials, Trump is expected to hold North Dakota's economy up as an example for America. A similarly sized tax cut in 2018 would be equivalent to roughly $580 billion a year, a figure that would cause the national debt to balloon to levels that many economists say could ultimately hurt growth.

"The U.S. tax code is bloated, cumbersome and long overdue for reform", Burgum said in a statement.

"If Democrats don't want to bring back your jobs, cut your taxes, raise your pay and help America win, voters should deliver a clear message: Do your job to deliver for America or find a new job", Trump said as the crowd applauded.

Cramer said the refinery will be a good backdrop for Trump to highlight why tax reform is needed and how it will affect Middle America.

"I'm optimistic about it because this is something we have to get done".

"Fixing it requires ideas from both sides of the aisle and a genuine commitment to working together", Oversen said. "Now more than ever, I hope President Trump uses this visit to address the kitchen-table issues that keep the North Dakotans I've met with across the state this past month up at night".

On Tuesday, Trump met with the "Big Six" - the group of Republican administration officials and lawmakers responsible for crafting tax reform legislation - and said he meant to reduce taxes for both individuals and businesses, which he hopes will spur job creation. Also joining the president were Republican Sen.
