Heitkamp spokeswoman Julia Krieger says the senator plans to travel with Trump on Air Force One.

The president has not publicly released his taxes, breaking with decades of precedent, meaning that there's no way to know for sure how much he might benefit from a Republican plan.

According to a report from the Congressional Budget Office, when taking out various deductions and tax breaks for corporations, the USA ranked fourth among G-20 countries in effective corporate tax rates - what countries actually pay.

Trump has made tax reform his focus over the past week, calling on Congress to pass legislation reforming the tax code.

"It's your money, not the government's money", Trump said.

"We're eager to hear the president's ideas, but North Dakotans don't just want to hear a political stump speech, either", Oversen said in an email.
