White House says details soon on taxes, DACAPosted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says it will soon release legislative priorities for its plans to overhaul the nation's tax system and to address hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children.
White House legislative director Marc Short says its principles for the tax overhaul will be released "in a matter of days, not weeks." President Donald Trump has been pushing for changes to the tax code to cut corporate and individual rates and simplify the system.
Trump is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, but giving Congress six months to address the issue. Short says the White House will be putting out its priorities for the program in the next couple of weeks. Short spoke at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.
