President Donald Trump will kick off his lobbying effort for a tax overhaul at an event in a Midwestern location, with a manufacturing backdrop and some economic tough talk.

But he is not expected to offer a detailed proposal. Instead, in Springfield, Missouri, Wednesday, Trump will give remarks that the White House says will focus on his "vision" for spurring job creation and economic growth by cutting rates and revising the tax code.

After a year with no major legislative wins, the stakes are high for the White House and GOP leaders, who face mounting pressure to get points on the board before next year's midterm elections.
