However, the tax push is coming at a time when Congress is confronted with a massive workload in September.

"Circumstances have changed significantly since the bill was drafted earlier this summer", spokesman Jennifer Hing said Wednesday.

Trump has promised billions of dollars to help Texas rebuild from Harvey-caused flooding. That's an exaggeration. Trump repeatedly referred to the USA top nominal 35% rate, which is among the world's highest.
