White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hit at the Democrats for refusing to participate in the GOP’s effort to reform the tax code, stating that Donald Trump would have “welcomed” their input.
Speaking on “Fox & Friends,” Sanders said Trump said many times that he was willing to work Democrats and invited them to the White House on several occasions.
“This is a president who would’ve been happy to take their call and certainly happy to have their vote, to help Americans have more money in their paychecks, more money in their pockets, more money for businesses to reinvest in this country,” Sanders said.
“That’s something that Democrats shouldn’t need to be begged to be a part of. They should’ve been begging and banging down the door of the building behind me to be part of this process and to be part of helping more Americans be more successful.”
“It’s a huge deal, but not just for the White House, but it’s a huge deal for America,” Sanders said. “This is something we’ve seen just talking about it has been a major boost to our economy.”
“Today is a huge day, not just for the White House, not just for Congress, but most importantly for America, especially middle class Americans who are going to see the biggest benefit out of this tax package,” she added.
