President Trump signs bill to reform America’s tax system

Blake Burman has the reaction from the White house.

President Trump on Friday, his first great lawgiver records of triumph – $1.5 trillion tax overhaul, expected to be tax trigger cuts for most Americans in the next year – as well as a temporary spending bill that keeps the government running until mid-January.

Trump among the bills signed, before heading to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., for the winter holidays.

Before the morning of the signing, Trump tweeted: “The President has managed some absolutely historical things during this last year.”

He added, “We build a long & nice list.”

The tax liability is likely to be at the top of this list, after the GOP legislature, extensive rewrite of the tax code consisted in three decades. The package would cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent-double the standard deduction and a variety of other changes.

After its passage, and Trump basked in the praise of Republican lawmakers, some of whom he had taken to task publicly earlier this year. You put the bad blood behind them, at least for now, and congratulated him as “one heck of a leader” and a “man of action.”

“This was a year of extraordinary success for the trump administration,” Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Democrats continue to control slam debt as a giveaway for the rich and corporations.

But the bill passage and the marked signed, a rare moment of legislative success for Trump, which was followed by the Democrats, called on him at every opportunity during his first year in office. The President has also seen his popularity drops to historic lows and is still dealing with the accusation that he or members of his campaign, in co-operation with Russia during the presidential race, which he denies.

Late Thursday, the Republican-led Congress government shutdown averted by a temporary spending bill – punting thornier issues such as immigration, health and the budget until 2018.

To keep the measure, the government running passed the house on a 231-188 vote on the democratic opposition. It made the Senate 66-32.

The stopgap legislation to keep the government shut down at midnight-Friday and resources by the government. Jan. 19.

“At some point, and for the good of the country, I predict, we will begin with the Democrats in a Bipartisan fashion,” Trump tweeted. “The infrastructure would be a perfect place to start. After I stupidly spent $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is time to begin the rebuilding of our country!”

Trump had also treated a few words for the media, which the President complains regularly it Fair.

“All my government has done, which is to be given to Legislative approvals (broke Harry Truman Record), regulation Cut, judges, buildings, military, VA, TAX CUTS & REFORM, data rate of the economy/stock market, and so much more, I’m sure the big credit, the mainstream news?” he tweeted.
