President Donald Trump plans to make his third Missouri appearance in just more than six months this week as he visits the St. Louis area to discuss tax cuts and the economy.
Trump is expected to appear Wednesday at Boeing’s Hazelwood plant with Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, a leading Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in 2018, and a handful of other GOP and business leaders.
Trump is also scheduled to appear at a Wednesday fundraiser for Hawley, who is vying for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat.
The White House is billing the visit as a “roundtable discussion” to highlight “the savings and benefits they have experienced as a result of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act.”
Missouri Treasurer Eric Schmitt and Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft also are expected to join the roundtable discussion. Gov. Eric Greitens, facing felony charges of invasion of privacy, was not included on a list issued by the White House.
