President Trump talks tax reform, politics at West Virginia roundtable

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, Wv. (WDBJ7) West Virginia was once again in the national spotlight Thursday with a visit from President Donald Trump.

In what was his second visit to the Mountain State in less than four months, the President took part in a roundtable event focused on tax reform at the White Sulphur Springs Civic Center.

The venue was filled with several hundred supporters, all of which were invited because of their political affiliation or ties to the people involved with today’s event.

Trump took part in a back-and-forth discussion that included state leaders and everyday workers, who say they’re benefiting the president’s policies.

“You’ve made a huge difference,” said Terry Dotson, a president, chairman and CEO of Worldwide Equipment who took part in Thursday’s roundtable. “Your tax cuts have made a difference.”

President Trump smiled as a panel ranging from bank workers to entrepreneurs told him how they’re benefiting from the tax reform legislation, recently passed by congress.

“Because of your tax cuts, our employees were able to enjoy bonuses this year,” explained roundtable participant Carla Stapleton, a director of human resources for Worldwide Equipment
