The Walzes were also subject to a phenomenon experienced by many Americans: Even though their total federal tax burden went down, they found themselves owing at the end of the year more than prior years.

"That tax bill was a major missed opportunity", she said.

Filing jointly, Klobuchar and her husband, attorney and professor John Bessler, found themselves in a lower tax bracket in 2018, but ultimately paid more in total taxes, as their combined income increased. It doubled the standard deduction and enhanced the child tax credit.

Along with discussions on taxes, trade and the economy, Trump also expressed his shock and sadness for the massive fire that was devastating the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - calling the blaze something "that is beyond country, it's beyond everything".
