President Trump praised House Republican leadership on Tuesday afternoon for successfully passing a tax bill that represents the largest reform of the tax code in three decades.

"Congratulations to Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Kevin Brady, Steve Scalise, Cathy McMorris Rodgers and all great House Republicans who voted in favor of cutting your taxes!" Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The Senate is expected to take up the House-passed bill Tuesday night for a vote. The legislation is expected to pass and head to Trump's desk.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called the passage the "greatest example of a promise being made and a promise being kept."

The House voted 227-203 vote in favor of the bill. Only 12 Republicans opposed the bill.
