President Trump used Hurricane Harvey to get a three-month delay on dealing with the debt ceiling issue. And on Saturday, the president said that he would ask the Republican controlled Congress to speed up their efforts to overhaul the U.S. Tax code because of the potential impact of Hurricane Irma.
“I think now with what’s happened with the hurricane; I’m going to ask for a speedup. I wanted a speed up anyway, but now we need it even more so,” the president said at the outset of a Cabinet meeting at Camp David. The White House released a video of his statement.
On Friday, President Trump challenged Congress in a tweet not to wait until the end of September for legislation on tax reform.
