Trump Touts Economy and Tax Reform in Ohio

Did Melania Trump Just Swat Donald's Hand Away? People Are Laughing At Yet Another PDA Diss

Melania Trump visits Cincinnati Children's Hospital

Trump made it clear Monday that he is a Renacci fan, mentioning him on several occasions during the speech.

"Your paychecks are going way up", Trump said.

Trump is calling their reception "un-American" and asks: "Shall we call that treason?" "Why not? They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much".

Trump's claim that not clapping was treasonous drew a round of applause from supporters at the rally. "You've seen it. The factories are coming back".

Trump said he chose to visit Sheffer Corp because it's a big beneficiary of the tax law he signed in December after Republicans passed it with little public debate and no Democratic support. Rob Portman, the junior Senator from OH, recommended to the Trump White House that it visit Sheffer.

Trump's wife, Melania, accompanied him to OH aboard Air Force One but peeled off to visit a children's hospital.

The president said the tax law is providing tremendous relief for the middle class and small businesses. That, or the most innocent yet totally awkward thing just happened on the White House lawn.

The first lady did her professional duty by accompanying the president to a speech in OH on February 5, but while walking to an awaiting helicopter on the White House lawn she shut down his attempt to hold her hand.

The White House said in a statement that it is "always concerned when the market loses any value" - but don't expect Trump to voice any of those concerns when he addresses the employees of Sheffer Corp on Monday.

Notably absent was the congressman in whose district the event was held. A majority of Americans remain skeptical the tax overhaul will help them or the broader economy, recent surveys say.
