Italy's 2020 spending plans could be "Trumpian", deputy premier interior minister Matteo Salvini said on Monday during a visit to Washington, referring to populist 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.
