The president told members of Congress at his tax reform speech that Americans were “counting on” them.
President Trump told members of Congress in attendance at his tax reform rally in Missouri on Wednesday that he did not want the legislative branch to let him and the American people down.
“So, this is our once in a lifetime opportunity to deliver real tax reform for everyday, hardworking Americans, and I am fully committed to working with Congress to get this job done,” Trump said.
He then pointed at members of Congress in the crowd and said, half-jokingly but definitively, “I don’t want to be disappointed by Congress.”
“I think Congress is going to make a comeback I hope so,” Trump continued. “The United States is counting on it.”
The president has been making his displeasure known with Congress’s failure to pass Obamacare repeal and replace in tweets directed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY):
The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed!That should NEVER have happened!
