Trump Celebrates Tax Law: 'We Are Making America Great Again'
President Donald Trump celebrated Wednesday's passage of the new tax law, calling it the "largest tax cut in the history of our country."
Trump predicted that $4 trillion parked overseas will be reinvested in America with the lowering of the corporate tax burden.

"Some of them don't even like us," he said of the nations where American companies have chosen to invest in light of the previously high corporate tax.
"We are Making America Great Again," he said, quoting his campaign slogan.
Trump credited several legislators by name for their key roles in getting the tax law passed.
He thanked Sens. Patrick Toomey (R-Pa.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Reps. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.), Diane Black (R-Tenn.), and Kevin Brady (R-Texas), among others.
After he concluded his remarks, he invited several of those members to speak on behalf of the law.
The Alaska delegation collectively thanked Trump for allowing oil drilling into Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) via the tax bill.
Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), the longest-serving current member of the House remarked that he has been unable to both see a marked tax cut and the opening of ANWR in his 37 years.
"This bill does what's right for this nation," Young said. "The great land will be great again."
