Just after midnight on Wednesday, the United States Senate passed the highly controversial Republican Tax Bill. With a vote expected to take in the House of Representatives later in the morning, Donald Trump decided to give his thoughts [VIDEO].

Trump on taxes

The Republican-proposed tax bill that has long been championed by Donald Trump was put up for a vote in the United States Senate late Tuesday night. By the time the votes were counted, the bill had enough support to pass, doing so down party lines with a 51-48 vote with only Republican Sen. John McCain sitting out. Earlier on Tuesday, the House of Representatives thought they had passed the bill themselves but due to a technicality, were forced to reschedule [VIDEO] a vote for the following day.

The bill in question has been controversial, with critics pointing to the massive tax breaks given to corporations and wealthy individuals, while labeling it a "Tax Scam." As seen on his Twitter feed on December 20, Donald Trump was pleased with the results of the Senate vote.

In a tweet sent out just minutes after the Senate vote on taxes was complete, Donald Trump decided to gloat about the bill moving forward. "The United States Senate just passed the biggest in history Tax Cut and Reform Bill," Trump tweeted out.

"Terrible Individual Mandate (ObamaCare) Repealed," Donald Trump continued. "Goes to the House tomorrow morning for final vote. If approved, there will be a News Conference at The White House at approximately 1:00 P.M," he concluded. Within seconds of Trump's tweet, those who have opposed the bill made sure to fire back.

Twitter backlash

With recent polls showing majority opposition to the tax bill around the country, it didn't come as a surprise when Donald Trump received backlash from his tweet. "Enjoy the tax cut for you and your rich friends. Thanks for taking health care away from millions of people. We will remember at mid terms," one tweet read.

"Congrats to Democrats on preemptively winning the 2018 midterms thanks to Republican selfishness!" one Twitter user wrote.

"Where I’m sure you will all be laughing and having a grand ole time at the expense of the middle class. You guys are a joke," another tweet noted.

"What stupid a** prop will you bring out this time?" an additional tweet wondered. "Yeah yeah... Fu*k the middle and lower class. We got the memo. Go sell a tacky hat or something," a social media user stated. With the tax bill headed to the House for a vote that is expected to pass, it will only be a matter of time before the president is able to sign it into law.
