ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that Missouri should vote Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill out of office if she does not back his tax cuts. "We must lower our taxes. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you and if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office," Trump said in a speech. Trump also said he still wants to see the U.S. corporate tax rate drop to 15 percent, saying cutting it is essential for the nation to regain its competitive edge. "We must reduce the tax rate on American businesses so they keep jobs in America, create jobs in America and compete for workers right here in America," Trump said in a speech aimed at shoring up support for a broad tax-cut plan. "Ideally ... we would like to bring our business tax rate down to 15 percent," he said.
