President Trump touted the GOP tax plan during a speech from St. Charles, Missouri Thursday afternoon.
He paid a visit to Capitol Hill for a meeting Tuesday with GOP leadership to discuss the Senate's upcoming vote on the bill. Mr. Trump has made it clear he's not expecting help from Democrats on the legislation. Also on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declined an invitation to discuss the tax overhaul with Mr. Trump at the White House, although their Republican counterparts were present. The Democratic leaders backed out of the meeting after he tweeted, "I don't see a deal!" hours before their scheduled gathering.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Mr. Trump each criticized Schumer and Pelosi for their lack of cooperation with the Trump administration in order to pass legislation, tax-related or otherwise.
