The Republican president told reporters Tuesday that they were in a "very good position" after the Senate Budget Committee's passage of the GOP tax plan.

Trump was joined by top Republican leaders from Congress at the White House. Democrats backed out of a planned meeting after Trump attacked them on Twitter.

Trump said the only thing Democratic Leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer care about is raising taxes.

Trump also went to the Capitol on Tuesday to meet with Senate Republicans to rally support for a sweeping tax bill. With no major legislative achievement, Trump is pushing hard for the GOP to deliver a tax cut bill to him by the end of the year.

The president also said the North Korea situation will be handled seriously.
