US House tax chief says Trump border tax not singling out Mexico

January 27, 2017 00:19

WASHINGTON - A leading congressional Republican on tax policy said on Thursday that he does not believe President Donald Trump is suggesting that revenues to pay for a border wall would come from a tax imposed solely on imports from Mexico.

"I don't think they were singling out one country," said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, whose congressional panel is crafting tax reform legislation.

"What I heard today from this president was ... that they would level the playing field for imports from around the world and level it with US products here in America at the exact same rate," he said in an interview with Fox News.
