Trump promotes GOP tax bill in Ohio

Trump says during a speech in Blue Ash, Ohio, that the Democrats last week gave off "bad energy" as he delivered his first State of the Union, failing to clap even at positive economic news.

"Your taxes are going way down for the first time in a long time, " Trump said in a 45-minute speech.

The president went to the Sheffer Corporation in Blue Ash, a suburb north of Cincinnati.

Trump's remarks about the state of the economy come as the Dow crashes down from the record highs it reached in January: it was down another 300 points on Monday, bringing its total drop over two days close to 1,000 points.

The episode highlights the political risk Trump runs tying his presidency too closely to a bull market.

The White House has yet to release details on the visit.

At 4:46 p.m., Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin - who returned to Washington with Trump, along with tax policy adviser Shahira Knight, Representative Jim Renacci and Senator Rob Portman, both Ohio Republicans - approached the press cabin. "And un-American. Un-American. Somebody said treasonous, I guess why not?"

He praised the work of Children's Hospital and then said that he believes in getting tough on drug dealers.

Arriving on Air Force One at Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport, Melania split with the president briefly and made way towards the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center along with the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and wife of U.S Sen.

The trip also followed a period of public speculation about the first couple's relationship after The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump's personal lawyer brokered a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in October 2016 to keep her from publicly discussing an alleged years-old affair with Trump.

Greg Carmichael, CEO of Fifth Third Bank, and Matt Schron from Jergens Inc. were among the business executives who accompanied Trump and Portman on the tour, and whom Trump called to the stage during his speech. He cited a commitment Apple Inc. announced in January to invest $350 billion in its USA operations and also lauded bonuses some companies have given workers since the tax overhaul was passed. The Trumps are traveling to Cincinnati, Ohio. There were also a few Trump supporters outside.
