Watch live: Trump pitches tax reform in Missouri

President Trump will travel to Missouri on Wednesday afternoon to give a speech promoting the GOP’s tax reform plan.

The speech is expected to put pressure on Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who faces a tough reelection bid in 2018, to vote for the bill.


On Tuesday, the Senate Budget Committee advanced the chamber's GOP tax bill, sending it to the Senate floor.

Trump won Missouri handily in the 2016 presidential election, and McCaskill is thought to be one of the more vulnerable Democratic senators up for reelection in 2018.

Trump is expected to speak at 3:30 p.m.
