Trump pushed for tax plan to be called ‘Cut Cut Cut Act’: report

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 Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady (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.

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.”
