WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):

1:10 p.m.

President Donald Trump is promoting the Republican tax law in Hialeah, Florida, highlighting improvements in Hispanic unemployment rates in the predominantly Latino Miami suburb.

Speaking a day before the personal income tax filing deadline, Trump says "This is the last time you're going to fill out that long, complicated, horrible return."

He says next year, once the tax law is fully implemented, filing a federal return will be "simple and easy to do."

Trump says the country is "starting to really rock" with businesses coming back to the country and corporations facing fewer regulations.

He also praised his new national security adviser, John Bolton, for Friday's air strikes in Syria. As the crowd applauded, he joked, "Are you giving him all the credit? You know that means the end of his job."

President Donald Trump is set to promote the Republican tax law during an event in South Florida.

The White House says Trump will hold a roundtable Monday with local business owners in the Miami area, joined by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Small Business Administration head Linda McMahon.

Facing headwinds this fall, Republicans are placing their midterm election hopes on selling the benefits of the law to Americans.

Trump has sometimes chafed at scripted events, deviating from the planned message to discuss whatever is on his mind.

Trump plans to host Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his Florida club this week.
