President Donald Trump planted a kiss on a symbol of the House Republican tax plan on Thursday to show his dedication to the proposal.
In a White House meeting with House Republican leaders and Republican members of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, the president had an enthusiastic response when he was shown two postcard-sized papers that some taxpayers would be able to use to file their taxes.
The president said, ‘‘great job!’’ and added that he didn’t know he was going to be given a prop. To show his approval, Trump kissed one of the postcards before giving it back to Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady.
Trump is trying to build momentum for the plan ahead of his trip to Asia. He says the bill is about tax cuts, tax reform and ‘‘it’s all about jobs.’’
