    Trump claims tax reform bill as a ‘historic victory’

    Donald Trump has praised a tax reform bill passed by both houses of the US Congress as a “historic victory for the American people”, as the contentious legislation represents the first major tax overhaul in over three decades.
    The president hailed the legislation, which was passed by the House of Representatives for a second and final time on Wednesday after hitting a procedural snag a day earlier, as “an incredible Christmas gift for hardworking Americans”.
    “I said I wanted to have it done before Christmas; we got it done,” Trump said during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
    Trump held a press conference alongside Republican members of the House and Senate on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate the bill’s passing.
