INDIANAPOLIS - The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):

6:30 p.m.

A motorcycle officer in President Donald Trump's motorcade in Indianapolis suffered a broken ankle after he crashed on the way to the airport.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department tweeted that the officer was transported to the hospital in good condition. It's unclear what happened.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says Trump telephoned the officer during the flight back to Washington.

Walters says Trump checked on the officer's condition, thanked him for serving and wished him well in his recovery.

Trump delivered a speech about his tax proposal in Indianapolis on Wednesday.


5:30 p.m.

President Donald Trump is teasing a potential announcement about new auto factories opening in the U.S.

Trump said during a speech in Indiana Wednesday that during the United Nations General Assembly last week, "one of the most powerful leaders in the world" told him the leader's country is planning to announce "in the not too distant future" that it would be increasing or building five "major factories in the US."

Trump says he promised he wouldn't disclose which leader, but adds, "It happens to be in the automobile industry."

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the possible plans.


5 p.m.

President Donald Trump is promising a "middle class miracle" as he tries to build momentum behind his plan to overhaul the nation's tax code and revive his moribund legislative agenda.

Hours after the White House and congressional Republicans released a framework for sweeping changes to the tax system, the president told hundreds of supporters at the Indiana State Fairgrounds the plan was "a once-in-a-generation opportunity."

Trump says, "This is a revolutionary change and the biggest winners will be the everyday American workers as jobs start pouring into our country, as companies start competing for American labour, and as wages start going up at levels that you haven't seen in many years," he said.
