President Trump calls out Senator Donnelly during speech

INDIANAPOLIS -- President Donald Trump called out Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly during his speech at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Wednesday afternoon.

President Trump provided details of his tax reform plan to the invitation only crowd.

During the speech, Trump said, "Just before coming here, we released some of the details of the tax, of the tax reforms and the tax cuts and it has really received tremendous reviews. And if Senator Donnelly doesn't approve it, because you know he's on the other side, we will come here and we will campaign against him like you wouldn't believe."

Following Trump's speech, Donnelly released the following statement about the tax reform proposal.

“I work for Hoosiers, not President Trump or any political party. As it stands, the framework released today is missing many details that will be critical to determining whether working- and middle-class families truly stand to benefit. These Hoosiers will be foremost in my mind as I continue to engage with my colleagues in the Senate and also with the White House to try to craft a tax reform bill that will provide greater economic security to these families and also create and protect jobs here in Indiana.”

Donnelly, who is up for re-election next fall, is the lone Democrat representing Indiana in Washington.
