Rubio, Corker back tax bill as Trump predicts ‘monumental’ reform will pass next week


President Trump on Friday predicted Congress would pass a sweeping bill to reform the country’s tax system next week, as several Republican holdouts said they would back the overhaul.

Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the only Republican to vote against the original version of the tax bill passed by the Senate, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has expressed concerns over the size of a child tax credit, both said Friday they would vote for the final tax bill.

The House and Senate have passed separate tax bills, but they have been working to come up with a final $1.5 trillion GOP tax reform legislation. Final votes are likely in both chambers next week.

As he departed the White House on Friday for a speech at the FBI academy, Trump told reporters he has seen the details of the final version and is confident Republicans will get behind it.

“I have seen it,” he said. “I think it’s going to do very, very well. I think that we are going to be in a position to pass something as early as next week, which will be monumental.” – READ MORE
