As Republicans are on the verge of passing the biggest change to the tax code in over three decades, opposition from Democrats has continued as the majority of the mainstream media have made sure to hold the GOP's feet to the fire over the details of the bill. In response, Donald Trump decided to go on the attack during his early morning tweetstorm.

Trump on Twitter

Just after midnight on Wednesday morning the United States Senate voted along party lines to pass the controversial Tax Bill put forward by Republican leaders and Donald Trump. The bill narrowly passed, doing so 51-48, with only Sen.

John McCain not casting a vote due to being home in Arizona following a hospital stay. Later on Wednesday the House of Representatives is scheduled to re-vote on the bill after a technicality voided their previous passing of the bill on Tuesday. With the bill getting closer to the president's desk, the opposition has only grown louder, with the latest CNN poll showing over half the country opposing the tax plan. As seen on his Twitter feed on December 20, Donald Trump was quick to blame the media for the bill not being more popular with the American people.

Taking to his Twitter account on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump vented his frustration at his tax plan not going over well with many around the country.

"The Tax Cuts are so large and so meaningful, and yet the Fake News is working overtime to follow the lead of their friends, the defeated Dems, and only demean," Trump tweeted.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump doubled down to help spin the narrative about his tax plan into the favor of the Republican Party.

"This is truly a case where the results will speak for themselves, starting very soon," he wrote, before adding, "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!" In a follow-up tweet, Trump gave Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell credit for getting enough senators on board. "I would like to congratulate Mitch McConnell on having done a fantastic job both strategically & politically on the passing in the Senate of the MASSIVE TAX CUT & Reform Bill," he wrote.

"I could have not asked for a better or more talented partner, Trump continued, while adding, "Our team will go onto many more VICTORIES!"

Tax reaction

Not long after sending out his tweet, Donald Trump was hit with backlash from those on social media who refuse to take him at his word. "Republicans will never again be able to claim they care about the deficit, or really anyone other than their corporate donors. You are Russia's useful idiot, the republican sign boy," one tweet read.

"76% of Americans know that you just screwed us over....that would be 76% of the voters in America," one Twitter user wrote.

"This bill incentives shipping US jobs overseas, like you do for all your Trump-branded apparel," another tweet stated.

"Just so we’re crystal clear......the GOP just voted to give themselves a tax cut.

The GOP just voted to give themselves and their donors a tax cut. DT is thrilled," an additional tweet noted. With the House of Representatives getting ready to vote again on the tax bill, it was clear that the opposition was not going away.
