President Trump brushes off concerns on tax plan, calls it 'great gift' to middle class

The president brushed off concerns the plan primarily helps the wealthy.

When asked Saturday why tax cuts for individuals are temporary while those for corporations are permanent in the bill, the president said it would be up to the next administration whether to extend the individual tax cuts.

"What will happen is, at the end, whichever the administration is in years from now, they'll make it and maybe can even make it more generous if we can get the economy like it should be," Trump said.

Asked by ABC News whether he believes passing the tax bill is a "done deal," the president was optimistic and slammed Democrats for what he called "standard soundbites" against the GOP plan.
