President Trump on Friday signed his first major legislative triumph – a $1.5 trillion tax overhaul expected to trigger tax cuts for most Americans next year – as well as a temporary spending bill that keeps the government running through mid-January.
Trump signed the bills before heading to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., for the winter holidays.
As he did, the president told reporters he was initially going to wait until after the new year but changed his mind because he wanted to prove he was keeping his promise to America to get a tax bill signed before Dec. 25.
“I didn’t want you folks to say I wasn’t keeping my promise” to sign the bill by Christmas, he said. “Every one of the networks was saying ‘Will he keep his promise? Will he sign it by Christmas?'”
