Would this be because Trump assumes that the savings would be passed on to workers (which I don't believe will happen), or is there some other rationale, like maybe returning more manufacturing jobs here will somehow result in higher wages? Does anyone know? (I'm looking for intelligent answers from anyone who has any idea about this, not juvenile, snarky one-liners from those who seem incapable of anything else.)

I'd like to see individual income tax rates lowered, not just corporate ones. That would surely result in more disposable income for those who work to earn it.
it will also increase the deficit if you're worried about that.
the reasons you mentioned is why many do not like it.
