Trump touts 'big week for tax cuts' as Senate GOP nears critical vote

President Trump on Sunday touted GOP-backed tax-reform efforts as Senate Republicans look to pass legislation this week. 

"Back in D.C., big week for Tax Cuts and many other things of great importance to our Country. Senate Republicans will hopefully come through for all of us. The Tax Cut Bill is getting better and better. The end result will be great for ALL!" the president tweeted. 

 

 

Trump's tweet came shortly after he touched down in Washington after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Senate Republicans and the Trump administration are aiming to score their first legislative victory this week since taking control of Congress and the White House in January.
