Trump, early on Wednesday (IST), said that his team was developing tax reforms that would reduce the rate on United States companies, so they could compete and thrive "anywhere and with anyone". The calls for bipartisanship with which Trump ended his speech weren't a gesture of outreach but a demand for submission.
