WASHINGTON D.C. — President Trump gave a speech Wednesday trying to rally Americans around an overhaul of the U.S. tax code that was long on rhetoric but short on details.

The president's speech at a manufacturing plant in Springfield, Missouri, took aim at Congress, telling lawmakers they should not miss a "once-in-a-generation opportunity" to inject more life into the U.S. economy by revamping the tax code, a report by Bloomberg said.

Trump stressed the importance of corporate tax cuts, which he said would make U.S. companies more competitive on the world market.

"Ideally, and I say this to our secretary of the treasury, we would like to bring our business tax rate down to 15 percent," the president said.

Speaking in general terms, Trump said his vision for helping the U.S. economy hinges on big tax cuts for businesses, investors, the wealthy, and the middle class. How the cuts would be paid for remained unclear.
