Rove: Optimistic in Tax Cut, Albeit One 'Not as Big, Bold'

Fox News' "The Story"

By    |   Tuesday, 01 Aug 2017 10:08 PM

Republican strategist Karl Rove said Tuesday he is optimistic the Trump administration is going "to get a tax cut done" – though it will not be "as big and as bold" because of the healthcare defeat.

In an interview on Fox News' "The Story," the Fox News contributor and former adviser to President George W. Bush "even after healthcare went down, I am hopeful."

"I'm actually optimistic that they are going to get tax reform measure done, a tax cut done," he said. "It's not going to be as big and as bold as we would have liked it to have been, particularly after the healthcare defeat, but it's going to be big enough and hopefully strong enough."

But passage in Congress "is going to be a tough lift."

"Lower expectations," he advised.

"Second of all, dial up the coordination," he added, "and third, expand the number of voices that are being heard — the outside groups, particularly the business community are getting revved up, and it is important to do that."

"You need to have the president deliver a more persuasive, consistent, and educational message," Rove said.

"He needs to tell the American people why he wants this. More than 140 characters, this is going to require speeches, marshaling the evidence as to why this is important, to describe in reasonable terms what might happen. Do not raise the expectations. Do not oversell this."
