Sen. Manchin joins President Trump at White House dinner

WASHINGTON (WSAZ) -- Bipartisanship was on the menu Tuesday night at the White House.

President Donald Trump talked tax reform with senators, three who are Democrats including one from our region.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, had a seat at the table. He released the following statement afterward:

“I was glad to join the President tonight to discuss how we can work together in a bipartisan manner on tax reform. We had a productive conversation about areas of agreement as well as areas where we will have to find compromise. I will continue to fight for a simpler tax code that lowers rates for West Virginians and incentivizes Main Street businesses to invest and grow in America, but we must do this without adding to our staggering debt. I look forward to working with the President, the Administration and my Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle on tax reform and going through regular order so we can help all Americans and West Virginians prosper.”
