Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, Sean Spicer wouldn’t give further details on the proposed tax. He described it as a beginning of a process that would be part of overall tax reform, but did describe it as a decision that Trump has already made.
“This is something that we’ve been in close contact with both houses in moving forward and creating a plan,” Spicer said. “It clearly provides the funding and does so in a way that the American taxpayer is wholly respected.”
