President Trump on Thursday hailed the Republican tax plan as a “big, beautiful Christmas present” for Americans, doubling down on his goal to sign it into law by year’s end.
“We’re working to give the American people a giant tax cut for Christmas,” he said at the White House. “We are giving them a big, beautiful Christmas present in the form of a tremendous tax cut.”
Trump repeated his false claim that the bill would deliver “the biggest tax cut in the history of our country.” That would be true if he was talking about corporate taxes, but not for the plan as a whole.
The president shifted into salesman-in-chief mode just hours after House Republicans unveiled their sweeping plan to slash individual and corporate tax rates.
“Great bill. Great bill. It’s going to be very special, you’ll see,” Trump said.[contentcards url=”http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/358450-trump-calls-tax-plan-a-big-beautiful-christmas-present-for-us” target=”_blank”]
