What tax cuts mean for Ohio
The President will tell Ohioans that since he signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in late December, more than 300 companies have delivered bonuses, raises, or 401(k) investments to more than 3 million American workers. The result of the bill has been historic tax relief for Americans not seen since President Ronald Reaganâ€™s Administration.
Before he speaks to Ohioans, President Trump will participate in a tour of the Sheffer Corporationâ€”a manufacturer of hydraulic, pneumatic, and custom cylindersâ€”and meet with Ohio business leaders.

The defectors shared personal stories of their harrowing escapes from North Korea, as well as details on their experiences living under Pyongyangâ€™s repressive Kim regime. The group of escapees met with other senior U.S. officials during their trip to Washington.
