President Trump embarked on a fundraising tour through New York City on Saturday, hours after Senate Republicans delivered his agenda its most significant legislative victory to date by approving a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s tax code.
At his first stop of the day at Cipriani restaurant in Midtown Manhattan — a fundraiser for his reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC), according to The Associated Press — Trump boasted about the Senate’s early-morning vote on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, recalling how he learned the news hours earlier that lawmakers had approved the measure largely along party lines.
“Last night at three in the morning, I got a call,” he told a crowd of about 400 supporters. “I said, ‘call me, you can call me.’ It’s the largest tax decrease in the history of our country by far.”
“We got no Democrat help and I think that’s going to cost them very big in the election, because basically they voted against tax cuts,” he added. “And I don’t think politically it’s good to vote against tax cuts.”
