President Trump at Signing of H.R. 1, Tax Cuts and Jobs Bill Act, and H.R. 1370

Washington, DC...Oval Office, 10:45 A.M. EST. THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. Thank you very much for being here, and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year. Have great holidays. We are going to sign some very important things today. One is a continuing resolution that very importantly gives us the right, and we are ordering $4 billion worth of missile defense equipment and missiles themselves. Very important. Top of the line. Best in the world. We make the best military product in the world, and nobody is even close.




And so we’re ordering $4 billion worth of missile defense, and that will be done by signing right here and also by notifying the Speaker of the House and President of the Senate, designating the missile defense as emergency defense fund. So it’s $4 billion for that and $700 million for various other military forms of equipment. And I’m very honored to be doing that. Our military has been doing a fantastic job in so many ways, with ISIS. And everything they’re touching lately has been working out. So we’re signing that.

(The document is signed.)

This is the letter to Mitch McConnell and, separately, to Paul Ryan, authorizing that having to do with missile defense. Very important. So that’s being done today, and that’s going to be sent out.

And then, when I watched the news — as you know, we had the largest tax cuts in our history just approved. And I was going to wait for a formal signing sometime in early January, but then I watched the news this morning and they were all saying, “Will he keep his promise? Will he sign it by Christmas?” You were one. But will he sign it by Christmas?” And I called downstairs, I said, I get it ready; we have to sign it now. We were going to wait until January 7th or 8th and do a big, formal ceremony, but every one of the networks was saying, “Will he keep his promise? Will he sign it before Christmas?” And so I immediately called, I said, let’s get it ready.

As you know, $3.2 trillion in tax cuts for American families, including the doubling of the standard deduction and the doubling of the Child Tax Credit. The typical family of four earning $75,000 will see an income tax cut of more than $2,000 — many much higher than that — slashing their tax bill in half. And they’re going to start to see that. Because we’re signing today, they’re going to start to see that in February. The numbers will speak.

One of the big things that happened — you have some companies. I want to thank AT&T, who actually was the first out of the box, and Boeing, and Sinclair, and Wells Fargo, and Comcast — even though they own NBC, which is not so nice to the presidency or the President. But Comcast also. They all have made tremendous contributions to their employees and tremendous contributions to spending money on this country because of the tax bill. And they all said it’s because of the tax bill. So they’re making tremendous investments. That means jobs; it means a lot of things. And we’re very happy. So that’s AT&T, Boeing, Sinclair, Wells Fargo, Comcast, and now many other companies who you see. In fact, just this morning, I see three more companies came on.

A friend of mine, Bob Kraft, called me last night, and he said this tax bill is incredible. He owns the New England Patriots, but he’s in the paper business too. And he said, based on this tax bill, he just wanted to let me know that he’s going to buy a big plant in the great state of North Carolina, and he’s going to build a tremendous paper mill there, or paper products plant.

And I’ve had many calls such as that, where people that are entrepreneurs, people in businesses, they’re going out and they’re going to buy, frankly, factories that are closed, abandoned, and now they’re not going to be abandoned any longer. This is having an even bigger impact, faster than I thought.

The corporate tax rate, as you know, will be lowered from 35 to 21 percent. That means that more products will be made in the USA. A lot of things are going to be happening in the USA. We’re going to bring back our companies. They’ve already started coming back. I think they had certain confidence in me and they figured we were going to get this done. But they have already started.

Something very important to me — the family farmers and small-business owners who lost their business because of the estate tax. Most of them won’t have any estate tax to pay. It will be a great thing for their families. You can leave your farm to your family. You could leave your business, your small business to your family — not even so small, because the numbers are pretty big here. So they’ll be exempt from having to pay an estate tax, which will be tremendous. They’ll keep their farms and their businesses in the family.

Businesses will be able to deduct 100 percent of the cost of their capital investments in the year the investment is made. That’s called expensing. And to do one-year expensing, I think, is going to be one of the biggest things in the bill, frankly. I think people are going to go out and absolutely go wild over expensing. Bob Kraft mentioned that last night in his telephone call. The fact that they can expense — do one-year expensing is a fantastic asset.

Historic small-business tax cuts and pass-throughs now are made really, really good for the business owner. They’re hiring people. I see it on television. I’m reading about it all over where people are hiring a lot of people right now to go to work. The small-business tax cut and the pass-throughs are now really incentivizing people.

We’re going to bring back probably $4 trillion from overseas. Nobody knows the exact number, but it’s massive. It will be over $3 trillion; it could be $5 trillion. But it’s a tremendous amount of money that was caught overseas that the bureaucracy plus the tax laws didn’t allow it to reasonably be brought back into our country. So we think at least $4 trillion is going to be brought back.

And if you look at that, it’s going to be brought back right under the code. This is something that Republicans wanted for years and Democrats wanted for years, and yet it never got done. Who would object to trillions of dollars being brought back into our country? Nobody. But it never got done. Now it’s being done.

And the bottom line is, this is the biggest tax cuts and reform in the history of our country. This is bigger than, actually, President Reagan’s many years ago. I’m very honored by it.

In addition, we have ANWR — we’re opening up ANWR for drilling. They’ve tried to get that for 40 years. They’ve tried to get that even during the Reagan administration. They could never get it. That alone would be a big bill if that ever happened, but that’s even part of this.

And we have, of course, the individual mandate, which is a very unfair and very unpopular provision, as you know, in Obamacare. Essentially, I think it ultimately leads to the end of Obamacare. Essentially, I think Obamacare is over because of that, and we’re going to come up with something that’s really going to be very good.

But the individual mandate was very unfair because you’re basically saying, pay for something in order not to have to get healthcare. So you’re paying — you’re paying not to have to have healthcare. It was very unfair. Many people thought it should have been overturned in the Supreme Court. It didn’t quite make it. Almost — but didn’t quite make it. But now we’re overturning the individual mandate, the most unpopular thing in Obamacare. Very, very unfair.

So this is the bill right here, and we’re very proud of it. It’s going to be a tremendous thing for the American people. It’s going to be fantastic for the economy. It’s going to keep companies from leaving our shores and opening up in other countries. They are very dis-incentivized to do that. There’s not — a lot of not a sense to do that. You do that, and I don’t think you’re going to be running your company very well.

So what’s happening is we’re going to sign this. This is a little picture of it. It fits nicely in the box. I said, take it out of the box because people have to see.

And all of this — everything in here — is really tremendous things for businesses, for people, for the middle class, for workers. And I consider this very much a bill for the middle class and a bill for jobs. And jobs are produced through companies and corporations, and you see that happening. Corporations are literally going wild over this, I think even beyond my expectations, so far beyond my expectations.

So I’ll sign this today rather than having a very big formal ceremony in two weeks when we were going to do it, because I didn’t want you folks to say that I wasn’t keeping my promise. I am keeping my promise. I’m signing it before Christmas. I said that the bill would be on my desk before Christmas, and you are holding me literally to that, so we did a rush job today. It’s not fancy, but it’s the Oval Office. It’s the great Oval Office.

And just to conclude: Our country is doing very well. We’ve tremendously cut regulations. Legislative approvals, for which I’m given no credit in the mainstream media — we have, I believe, it’s 88, which is number one in the history of our country. Second now is Harry Truman. Harry Truman had more legislative approvals than any other President and — a record long held. And we beat him on legislative approvals, for which I get no credit.

A lot of people say he needed this because he has had no legislative approvals. Well, if you look at VA Accountability Act and so many other bills having to do with the VA; having to do with the military; having to do with many things — we have more legislative victories than any other President, not including this. But this is the capper because this is, again, the biggest tax cut, the biggest reform of all time.

So it’s an honor to have you with us, and we will sign this right now. This is something I’m very proud of. Great for our country, great for the American people. Thank you all.

(The bill is signed.)

THE PRESIDENT: So we won’t do the whole thing, but this is basically what it is. That’s your bill.

And I want to thank some people in particular that aren’t here, because, again, we expected a formal ceremony in two weeks. But Mitch McConnell has been fantastic, worked so hard. He would speak at 3:00 in the morning and 2:00 in the morning. And we would speak whenever we had to speak. But he worked so hard.

And the exact same thing can be said for Paul Ryan. They are very proud of this, and we’re already seeing the results. And as I said long before — long ahead of schedule. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, thank you very much.

Orrin Hatch, the Chairman, made a beautiful speech the other day in front of the White House, an absolutely brilliant, beautiful speech. And we appreciated it, and I appreciated it. Hardworking.

Kevin Brady, I don’t think he slept for months. It’s almost like that’s all he did was this.

Mike Enzi, Senator Enzi. Diane Black. Rob Portman — the group of Rob Portman. Rob worked so hard; so knowledgeable on the subject. Pat Toomey, likewise. Tim Scott, likewise. John Thune, likewise. These people worked so hard. And I don’t know if they’re given the proper credit.

And the whole Senate — when I say the Senate, unfortunately the Republicans in the Senate. Democrats don’t like tax cuts. They want to raise your taxes; they don’t want to lower your taxes. They want to raise your taxes, and they want to spend money foolishly on things that we don’t need, in many cases.

So we’re cutting taxes, we’re taking care of our military, and we’re taking care of people. And we’re really doing a job on jobs.

So these folks have been so fantastic that I had to call them up — and plenty of others, believe me. Republicans in the House and Republicans in the Senate have been incredible. So this is what we get. We had it, it was set to go. As soon as I get back from Christmas, where we’ll be working in Florida — I’ll be working very hard during that Christmas because we have many things we’re talking about, including North Korea, including a lot of things happening in the Middle East, as you know.

We’ve made tremendous strides — obviously in Syria, with ISIS. We’ve taken back virtually all of the caliphate, all of the land. Same thing in Iraq. And we’re making tremendous strides — it’s sort of the unwritten story right now. But since my speech on Afghanistan, we’re making tremendous progress, tremendous strides. We’ve opened it up and it’s a whole different world in Afghanistan, I can tell you that.

So I’ll be working very hard over the holidays. Again, I want to wish you a very merry Christmas. I have some beautiful pens over here. And because all of these folks are either continuing to work down the road or getting ready to leave — and I’m sure they’ll be working very hard also — I think I’m probably going to hand some of them to the press. The media — would any of the media like any of — oh, look at these camera guys. But I think we’ll do that. So we have them.

Many of you have worked very hard. Many of you have worked very, very fairly, and we really appreciate that. So here you go folks. You want the box with it, or not? Huh?

Q Mr. President, can you talk a little bit about how much you’ll travel to sell this tax bill?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t think I’m going to have to travel too much to sell it. I think it’s selling itself. It’s becoming very popular, but I think it will really — you’ll see something on February 1st, when they open up the paycheck. That’s when you’re going to start to see it. Because by signing it now, it kicks in for this year.

Remember, if we didn’t make a certain date, it wouldn’t kick in until next year; meaning, the following year — ’19. And I wasn’t happy with that. So we worked very, very hard to make sure it was this year. Even language originally said the corporate would kick in ’19, but we didn’t do that. We have it kicking in now, but we had to sign.

So I don’t think we’re going to have to do much selling. I think the corporations that are giving billions and billions of dollars away to their workers — and many more are coming — I think that’s really what’s selling this maybe better than anybody could, including myself. But I think come February, when they open their checks and they see, “Wow, what happened? I have a lot more money in here” — I think that’s really going to be something very special.

So have a great holiday, folks. Some of you folks take — I, in particular, like the boom holders. They were so nice to me the other day, right? (Laughter.) And the cameramen — and the cameramen.

Q Mr. President, as you mentioned, no Democrats have supported this tax cut legislation. Will they regret it?

THE PRESIDENT: I think the Democrats will really regret — the Democrats already regret it. You know, they have their typical thing — “It’s for the rich.” They know that’s not true. And they’ve been called out on it by the media, actually. But the Democrats very much regret it. They wanted to be a part of it; it just doesn’t work out. But I really do believe — and I said on social media today — I really do believe we’re going to have a lot of bipartisan work done, and maybe we start with infrastructure, because I really believe infrastructure can be bipartisan.

We’ve spent $7 trillion in the Middle East, not to mention all of the lives and all of the heartache, and it’s so sad. Seven trillion dollars. It’s time for us to rebuild our country. Thank you very much, everybody.

Q Do you wish you would’ve started with infrastructure at the beginning of this year? Would that have sort of set the tone differently for people working together?

THE PRESIDENT: Infrastructure is the easiest of all. We’re very well on our way. We’ve essentially repealed Obamacare. You know, the individual mandate is a very big factor in this bill, frankly. A lot of people don’t talk about it because the tax code is so important. But infrastructure is by far the easiest. People want it — Republicans and Democrats. We’re going to have tremendous Democrat support on infrastructure, as you know.

I could have started with infrastructure. I actually wanted to save the easy one for the one down the road. So we’ll be having that done pretty quickly. Thank you all very much.

Q Did you learn anything in this process that you think will help you in 2018?

THE PRESIDENT: You know, one thing I really learned is, I learned, and got to know and became very friendly with, the people in the House, the people in the Senate — both Republicans and Democrats. When I came, I didn’t know too many. I was very politically active but I didn’t know too many. I think the fact that I’ve become with friends with so many of the names that I just read off, and so many of the senators, so many of the congressmen and women, I think that’s a huge factor. I can call anybody now. I know every one of them very well. And I understand the legislation very well.

So, you know, it’s been a process. It’s been a great process. Really beautiful. But I do believe that the fact that I have gotten to know so many of these people — and many of these people, I have to say — not saying all, but I’m saying many of these people are great people that truly love this country. So I think that helps. And I think you’ll see that in this legislation.

Q Any regrets?

THE PRESIDENT: No.

Thank you very much. Thank you all.

An amazingly sinister president. Complained about Obama leaving the White House to go to the country of Hawaii in 2013 at Christmas. Yet, look at him. 100 days spent on Trump properties since becoming president. What did THAT cost us?! And such a lying man... worse than Ted Cruz or Hillary. Truly a deplorable's deplorable...

Well, President Obama upheld the dignity of his office. Trump is sh!tting on it. Trump has decimated our world status even worse than "W" did. Just like "W" wasted the good economy Clinton left him, Trump is trashing what was a stellar reputation. Now we are a laughing stock of a country... Trump is our ruin.

Maybe he'll keep his amazing, amzing mouth hole shut until January 2nd. It would be nice to not hear him for awhile. Maybe Florida will distract him. Putin is supposed to visit him for the holidays.

What a piece of trash. I'm happy for those folks working in the few companies that will get the one time (heavily publicized) Christmas bonuses. But anyone with a decent knowledge of the U.S. tax system can tell you this is a bad deal for the vast majority of Americans.

My Grandpa (who was very much a conservative republican), used to always to me, "Never trust anyone who always tells you how great they are or how good of a job they're doing. If they have to keep telling you this they ain't doing good and aren't up to no good." I can only imagine his take on Donald's demeanor.

    Thats the color of a Russian who's been in Florida too much. His red is fading to orange. Another clue that fits in with what a lot of people are saying' TRUMP WAS BORN IN RUSSIA

Why is Trumps lips always puckered when he talks? Is he trying to suck air or blow air?

    Wow! This tax bill is better than I ever could have imagined because you wacko liberals are soiling yourselves liberally. Good to see there is plenty of tin foil left for your heads.

      You fail to understand the simplest concepts- this tax bill is bad for our nation. Regardless of liberal or conservative, only the wealthy will benefit to the detriment of the rest of the country, including California, Calaveras, and its citizens.

          How about 60% or more of the gross domestic product going to the wealthy, 30% of whom are foreign investors, corporations getting 15% tax cuts while working people might get some chump change in their weekly paycheck.

              It's unfortunate that the Democrats still don't have a clue. They lost the election because of liberalism and their socialistic aims. So, to you posters that want to sound so smart and knowing, I say just relax, find a coloring book and some warm milk and shut the hell up!!!

                You are one of the few. The few who insist on living in their own close minded biased world. The few who live by labels, bumper sticker mottos, nihilist propaganda, authoritarianism, unquestioning loyalty to a philosophy rather than history or science or evidence. In loyalty to your kind you cannot tolerate the those who would progress and adapt to a changing world. That which does not change, does not adapt, soon dies away.

                Democrats did lose the election for the reasons you state. In fact more voters voted for the democratic candidate, by about 3,000,000 more votes . The only reason trump won was because he got 70,000 more votes in just3 states- Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio, which gave him more electoral college vote. This does not even take into account the influence of Russia, superpacs, and voter suppression in those states.
