President Trump's visit brings support, outrage to Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Hundreds lined up outside the Harrisburg Air National Guard Base Wednesday to hear President Donald Trump pitch his latest tax plan.

"My congressman Scott Perry, our senator Pat Toomey are leading the charge on tax reform so I'm interested to hear what he says," said Allison Blew from Windsor, Pennsylvania.

"We know we need tax reform, there's a huge burden on the middle class," said a supporter from Pittsburgh.

Trump's stop in the Keystone State also brought a crowd of protesters out on the steps of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building.

"Not one more penny, not one more penny," protesters chanted. 

Harrisburg Rising and other advocacy groups rallied against what they call proposed tax cuts for the rich.

"I don't think those people need anymore help, they're doing just fine," said a speaker at the rally.

The White House says this tax reform will benefit truckers by lowering their tax rates, boosting manufacturing and making it easier for families to pass their trucking businesses onto their children.
