"We promised that these tax cuts would be rocket fuel to the economy and we were right", Trump said during a roundtable discussion.

President Trump spent his tax filing day in Minnesota, where he touted his $1.5 trillion package of corporate and individual tax cuts he signed into law in 2017 and made a pitch for his 2020 reelection.

Larry Kudlow, director of the president's National Economic Council, pushed back against critics who argue the reductions benefited corporations more than average Americans.

"Today is tax day", Trump said to boos, according to pool reports.

He claimed his tax cuts are the largest in USA history, but the facts show otherwise.

Most economists - including at the Federal Reserve - anticipate growth will slump this year to just above 2 percent as the stimulus from the tax cuts wanes. A $1.5 trillion tax cut ranks 12th as a share of the total economy, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

"President Trump is trying to hide the real effect of his tax bill from the American people, just like he's trying to hide his own tax returns", a statement from DFL chair Ken Martin read. Amy Klobuchar spoke out about Trump's tax bill.

So far Trump doesn't appear to be getting much credit for the tax changes.

The president's personal lawyers sent a new letter to Treasury Department on Monday to make the case that the IRS should not hand over the president's tax return information, saying the request is unconstitutional.

The Democratic Presidential candidate said Trump should be focused on investing in infrastructure.

Trump narrowly lost Minnesota to Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 but hopes to claim victory here in 2020.

Minnesota, which gave the country Vice Presidents Hubert Humphrey and Walter Mondale, both Democrats, hasn't given its 10 electoral votes to a Republican since Richard Nixon in 1972.
