Details, Reactions to the President's Visit to Minnesota Today

(ABC 6 News) -- We’re learning new details about President Donald Trump’s visit to Minnesota. Trump is expected to arrive at MSP Airport at 12:30 Monday with a round table discussion in Burnsville at 1:00 p.m. His focus will be on taxes and the economy.

Governor Walz has said this is not an official campaign stop, which is why he will be greeting the President at the airport.


His visit is already stirring up a response. U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar held a press conference Sunday. 

"We know the President is here to celebrate the tax bill. We think he needs to answer some basic questions about the promises he has made to the American people," said Senator Klobuchar.

She said Trump’s tax breaks could have instead been invested into bridges, roads, and schools.

The twitter account for President Trump’s official public schedule says the President will promote what it calls the economic success of his administration, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

He will hold a round table discussion at Nuss Truck and Equipment in Burnsville.

The President promised his tax plan would benefit businesses and the American working class.

"We are giving them a big beautiful Christmas present in the form of a tremendous tax cut," said President Trump in 2017.

However, Senator Klobuchar said that money would be better invested in the country’s crumbling infrastructure. 

"The tax bill that he passed that he is here to celebrate tomorrow doesn't invest in things like infrastructure. Instead, it gives a disproportionate amount of that tax money to the wealthy," she said.

Klobuchar said she would invest one trillion dollars in infrastructure by rolling back tax giveaways to the wealthy.
