President Trump praises the progress of the GOP tax bill as the House and Senate work to pass a final version.

In a tweet Thursday morning, the president said Republicans are working hard to include massive tax cuts in the legislation.

He also noted the stock market hit another record high Thursday.

House and Senate Republicans reached a deal on Wednesday to ensure the final bill includes major tax cuts for both businesses and individuals.

Just one day after GOP leaders reached a tax bill compromise, House Speaker Paul Ryan touts tax reform and the positive effect it will have on middle class Americans.

During his weekly press briefing, Ryan said the bill will create more jobs and increase the income of middle class Americans.
