Washington, 18 June (IANS/AKI) Italy's 2020 spending plans could be "Trumpian", Deputy Premier Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said on Monday during a visit to Washington, referring to US President Donald Trump."Could the next budget be Trumpian? Why not?" Salvini told reporters at the Italian ambassador's residence after a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.Following his far-right League party's European Parliament election win last month, Salvini wants to push for a flat tax on personal and small-business incomes up to 50,000 euros in the 2020 budget that he argues will boost Italy's chronically low growth.
