CBS News reported that Trump told friends at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida a few hours after he signed the GOP tax bill that they all just got wealthier.

"You all just got a lot richer," Trump said Friday at a dinner at Mar-a-Lago, two friends at a table near the president told CBS News.

Late last week, Trump signed the sweeping Republican tax bill into law, marking his first major legislative accomplishment since winning the White House.

Trump and congressional Republicans have been pushing tax reform for several months. Trump has pitched the tax-reform plan as a boon to the middle class.

Democrats, though, have argued that the largest benefits will go to wealthy Americans like the president.
