President Trump and House GOP leaders are at odds over what to name the forthcoming tax bill, ABC News reported Wednesday.

Trump has reportedly insisted on calling the legislation the "Cut Cut Cut Act," but House Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanGOP super PAC drops .5 million on Nevada ad campaign Blue wave poses governing risks for Dems Dems seek to rebuild blue wall in Rust Belt contests MORE (R-Wis.) and House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin BradyKevin Patrick BradyHouse GOP bill a mixed bag for retirement savers China imposes new tariffs on billion of US goods: report Trump announces tariffs on 0B in Chinese goods MORE (R-Texas) have pushed back on the idea.

The emphasis on tax cuts in the president's suggested name is because White House polling shows that Americans look more favorably on language about tax cuts than tax reform, according to ABC.


Trump has reportedly continued to support his suggested tax plan name, despite internal GOP opposition. Ultimately, ABC News reported, the Ways and Means Committee will decide the name of the plan, which is set to be unveiled Thursday.

Ryan initially sought Trump's help in naming the bill, according to the report, because the real estate mogul has long boasted about his propensity for branding and marketing. 

A senior aide in Ryan's office told ABC News that the naming of the bill was a "total nonissue."
