WATCH LIVE: President Trump Celebrates Tax Bill Passage With Presser


President Donald Trump announced Wednesday morning that he will be holding a White House press conference to celebrate the passage of the GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was approved by the House and Senate this week.

Trump spent the day tweeting about the bill, congratulating Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his work on getting it passed — and bashing the “fake news” media for its coverage of the plan:

The plan cuts taxes for all income levels — though the wealthy see the biggest benefit, according to a Tax Policy Center analysis, and the middle class will see their cuts expire in 2025 if they are not renewed.

The passage of the bill is Trump’s first major legislative victory in office, and comes in just before the end of year.
