Lewandowski expects three parts to tax reform

Corey Lewandowski on Wednesday forecasted that President Trump's tax reform plan will have three parts.

"Tax reform is a very, very important component of the president's agenda. I think what you will see, hopefully, is three big components," Lewandowski, who managed Trump's presidential campaign until June 2016, said on "Fox & Friends."

He said Americans can expect a plan that will lead to less cash flow going overseas, deductions for middle-class families and a simplified tax code.

"You will see the repatriation of money coming back from overseas, which is going to be a huge boost to the economy. You will see the increase in deductions from middle-class and working families so they have more deductions. And you will see the simplifying of the tax burden, the tax code," he added.

Lewandowski pointed to how Trump will go "on the road talking directly to the American people" while he pushes his agenda, which he says is Trump at his best.

"Look, if that happens, I love when the president is on the road, personally," Lewandowski continued. "I think he is the very best when he is on the road talking directly to the American people."

Lewandowski's remarks about tax reform come shortly after the Senate GOP's push to pass a healthcare bill that repeals and replaces ObamaCare collapsed.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday evening that Republicans would try to move forward with their plan to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement next week, despite them appearing short of the needed votes to pass the bill.

GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) all expressed their opposition to McConnell's push this week for a clean repeal of ObamaCare after Republicans' plans for a repeal-and-replace measure failed.
