Winning: Trump Takes Victory Lap After Republicans Pass Tax Cuts

President Trump is praising Republicans for passing historic tax cuts Wednesday afternoon and will host lawmakers at the White House for a celebration.

After the House voted and passed a revised Senate version of the legislation, lawmakers who voted in favor congregated outside of the Capitol to board buses down to Pennsylvania Avenue. 

The bill will be signed by President Trump in the coming days and will go into effect in February. 

"We had a historic victory for the American people.  It will go through final passage today in the House.  Then the congressmen and women and the Senate will be coming over -- the Republican Senate," Trump said at the White House earlier today. "We're going to have the Republican senators come over, we're going to have the Republican members of the House come over.  And we're going to have a news conference.  And people are starting to see how great this historic victory was."
