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 RyanCruz hires Trump campaign press aide as communications director Bottom line Ex-Trump chief of staff Priebus mulling Wisconsin governor bid MORE (R-Wis.) and House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin BradyKevin Patrick BradyBiden nominee previews post-Trump trade agenda New CDC guidance ends up deepening debate over reopening schools McCarthy seeks shift from party's civil war 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."
