Ivanka Trump Pushes for Tax Reform at Bucks County Town Hall

First daughter and adviser to the President Ivanka Trump was in Bucks County, Pennsylvania Monday for a town hall on tax reform.

The hourlong event took place at the James Kinney Senior Center in the Richboro section of Northampton Township. Along with Trump, U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza served on the panel while former New York congresswoman Nan Hayworth moderated.

The town hall was in front of families and residents from the Bucks County area and focused on how tax reform can help middle class and working class families.

Some attendees were selected to ask questions.

Protesters gathered across the street from the center ahead of Trump’s remarks.

The town hall came as Ivanka Trump’s father, President Donald Trump, continues to urge House Republicans to move swiftly on passing a budget bill to clear the way for what he described as a historic push for tax cuts.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both joined the House GOP conference call Sunday in which Trump called on members to adopt the budget passed by the Senate this week, so that they can move on to passing his tax reform plan.

Trump told the members they were on the verge of doing something historic, according to one Republican official on the call, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss publicly what was intended as a private update for members.

President Trump also visited Harrisburg, Pennsylvania back on Oct. 11 and pitched his tax plan as a boost for truckers.
