As Donald Trump and other congressional Republicans came together in celebration of the passing over their controversial Tax Bill, the president made comments that didn't go over well with some. After pointing out Rep. Steve Scalise who had been shot earlier in the year during a congressional baseball practice, the president took at jab at his weight loss.

Trump on Scalise

On Wednesday, the Senate and House of Representatives passed the tax bill that had long been pushed by Donald Trump. Despite promotion by the commander in chief, the bill has faced backlash from critics who argue that it is heavily in favor of the wealthy and corporations at the expense of low and middle income Americans.

Several non-partisan studies have concluded that the bill will cut taxes for most Americans in the short term, but raise their rates over time, while projecting an additional $1.7 trillion added to the debt over the next decade. Despite this, Trump found enough support in his party to have the bill pass to his desk for a signature just in time to end the year. As reported by NBC News on December 20, Trump gathered with his fellow Republicans to celebrate their victory, but made a cringe-worthy remark in the process.

Standing with several Republican lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

on Wednesday afternoon, Donald Trump was pleased with the results of the vote. "It was a little team. We just got together, and we would work very hard," Trump said, before stating, "Didn't we? It seems like it was a lot of fun." "It’s always a lot of fun when you win,” the president noted, while adding, "If you work hard and lose, that’s not acceptable."

During his speech, Donald Trump called out Republican Rep.

Steve Scalise who spent time in the hospital earlier this year after getting shot by a civilian during a practice for the annual congressional baseball game. Scalise was in critical condition at one point, but was able to pull through and return to work in Congress. "He had a rougher year than most of us, but that's a hell of a way to lose weight, Steve," Trump said in a sarcastically mocking way.

"Not a good way, but great job," Trump added.

Next step

With the bill passing in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, Donald Trump will sign it into law later this week. According to recent reports, the next agenda Republicans will address will be welfare reform, which is expected to get push back from Democrats.
