USTR Robert Lighthizer Statement on the President's Tax Reform Agenda

August 30, 2017

Washington, DC – United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer released the following statement regarding the President’s tax reform agenda:

"I applaud the President's leadership on tax reform that will create more U.S. jobs and help level the playing field for American exporters in the global economy. For far too long, American workers have been disadvantaged by a domestic trade barrier: the highest business tax rate in the developed world. President Trump's tax agenda provides a simpler and fairer tax system to help restore American competitiveness and bring back jobs."
