Press Briefing by Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, 16/11/2017 It Reads:
EYEAFRICA TV: Washington, USA: The President’s historic five-country trip to Asia was an incredible success. He rallied the world against the menace of North Korea; strengthened our alliances and showed our commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific region; and took a stand for fair and reciprocal trade. As a result of the trip, American families will be safer and more secure, and American workers and companies are one step closer to competing on the level playing field they deserve.
Speaking of leveling the playing field for our workers and businesses, the President applauds the House for passing the Tax Cut and Jobs Act — a massive step toward fulfilling our promise to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people by the end of the year.
We are encouraged that the House and Senate continue to work together to deliver what the President asked them to do: allow hardworking middle-class families to keep more of their money, and empower our companies and workers to dominate their global competition.
The Senate Finance Committee is also making progress on its companion bill, and will soon advance it to the floor for a vote.
A simple, fair and competitive tax code will be rocket fuel for our economy, and it’s within our reach. We’ll bring back our jobs, we’ll bring back our wealth, and as the President has said many times, we’ll bring back our great American dreams. Now is the time to deliver, and we fully expect the Senate to follow the House’s suit.
