White House press secretary Sean Spicer told an Irish newspaper Friday that the Trump administration may begin a tax code overhaul by this spring.

Reuters reported the timing Sunday. 

Ireland's Sunday Independent newspaper interviewed Spicer late last week, during Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny's diplomatic visit to the District.

"We are going to have tax reform after we get healthcare completed. … I think we are looking at late spring to summer," Spicer told the newspaper.

Trump promised to lower taxes for the middle class and for businesses during his campaign. 

Some, according to Reuters, fear the Trump-backed GOP healthcare proposal, which is being criticized by members of its own party, could delay the Trump administration’s tax reform plans.
