NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - President-elect Donald Trump made a stop in Baton Rouge Friday, where he discussed his plans for the future of the country and Louisiana.
"Our plan begins with bold structural reform to create millions of really good paying jobs. We've lost our great jobs, and you know there is going to be a big part, because you're in the energy business more than most places," Trump said.
Trump promised to build more refineries and pipelines.
"You know we haven't had refineries built in decades, right? We're going to have refineries built again folks," Trump said.
He had this to say about taxes: "We're also going to lower our business tax rate from 35 percent all the way down to 15 percent. You're going to start hiring again. And, we are going to make it not so easy when companies want to leave Louisiana and go to other states, go to other countries, go to other states, you know - what if they do? I'm sorry folks, you got to fight for yourself, right?"
Trump also addressed ethics reform and immigration.
"Ethics reform will be a crucial part of our 100-day plan as well, we're going to drain the swamp of corruption in Washington D.C.," said Trump. "We will build a great wall and we will put an end to illegal immigration and stop the drugs from pouring into our country also."
