Trump Announces New Economic Model Called the 'American Model'

Saying, “I’m calling on all members of Congress — Democrat, Republican, and independent — to support pro-American tax reform,” President Trump outlined a new economic model. He calls it, simply, the “American Model.” Re-striking a chord for American cooperation (trying to distance himself from his Charlottesville, healthcare, and intra-Republican divisiveness), Trump said, “We encourage companies to hire and grow American, to raise wages for American workers, and help rebuild American cities and communities. That is how we will succeed and grow together, one team with one shared sense of purpose and one glorious American density.” He said plainly that Congress must work with him: “They have to do it.”
