President Donald Trump celebrated on Twitter on Saturday morning after the Republican’s dramatic tax reform victory in the Senate overnight.

Shortly before 8am, he rejoiced: ‘Biggest Tax Bill and Tax Cuts in history just passed in the Senate. Now these great Republicans will be going for final passage.

‘Thank you to House and Senate Republicans for your hard work and commitment!’

Later, he made a brief appearance outside The White House before being whisked to Joint Base Andrews to board Air Force One.

Trump tried to use the victory to sideline questions from reporters about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea to lying to FBI investigators.

Asked if he was worried what Flynn’s plea, who admitted lying to the feds about his contact with Russian officials on behalf of the Trump campaign on Friday, Trump said: ‘No I’m not. What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion.

‘There’s been absolutely no collusion so we’re very happy and frankly last night was one of the big nights.’
The president is on his way to New York City to attend Republican fundraisers on Saturday where he will no doubt carry on the celebrations.

At 1.51am on Saturday, the Senate dramatically approved the $1.5trillion bill which Democrats cried foul over, claiming they did not have time to read it before the votes were cast.

It was passed with a vote of 51-49 vote moves the GOP and President Donald Trump a major step closer to slashing taxes for businesses and the rich in a bid to re-ignite the economy while offering everyday Americans more modest changes.

Trump was still up when the decision was announced at around 2am and he tweeted then too.
