(Reuters) - United States President Donald Trump said late Monday that the Democrats who control the House of Representatives should propose a one-year payroll tax cut.

"The Democrats in the House should propose a very simple one year Payroll Tax cut. Great for the middle class, great for the USA!" Trump said in a tweet.

A top White House adviser told Reuters in February that the Trump administration was considering a 10% tax cut for middle-class Americans and making some other tax reductions permanent as part of a package it intends to propose before the November election.
