President Trump is promoting his "big, fat tax cut" in his address to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Friday, along with the words "Made in the U.S.A."
The president introduced a tax framework earlier this week that features a dramatic cut to the corporate tax rate -- from 35 percent down to 20 percent -- as well as tax policies to ease the burden on U.S. companies and a proposal to coax companies to repatriate their overseas profits.
He'll also be highlighting the policy steps his administration has taken to help manufacturers already.
"When we grow American manufacturing, we don't only grow our jobs and wages - we also grow the American spirit," President Trump will say, according to a senior administration official. "When we purchase products made in America, fashioned by our fellow citizens, we renew the bonds of national loyalty that link us all together."
The administration has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for failing to get a health care bill through Congress, and for the possibility of delay on the GOP tax plan.
NAM has embraced the president's proposals.
"Manufacturers in America have never been as enthusiastic or as optimistic about their future as they are this year, and that is because of the huge opportunity we have to get tax reform done," said the association's president and CEO, Jay Timmons.
