President Trump delivered his closing arguments on tax reform Wednesday afternoon, just hours after GOP lawmakers reached an agreement on an overhaul package. Trump emphasized how passing tax cuts was a key campaign promise, and said "now we're just days away" from keeping it.
Key quote: "But we need your help to get Congress across that finish line. We'll have very little Democratic support, probably none, and that's purely for political reasons. They like it a lot, and they can't say it ... some day we have to come together and do bipartisan — and hopefully it can happen soon."
More from Trump:
- "I'm here today to tell you that we will never let bad things happen with respect to the economy of our country."
- If Congress gets him a tax bill before Christmas, the IRS said Americans will start seeing lower taxes and bigger paychecks beginning in February.
- "Somebody else called me and everybody else the 'Deplorables.' We're proud to be the Deplorables, and we're doing well."
