When listing out his accomplishments in his first full year in office, Trump touted his "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" tax reform initiative, which was praised by many congressional Republicans, but criticized by Democrats.

"As tax cuts create new jobs, let us invest in workforce development and job training. Let us open great vocational schools so our future workers can learn a craft and realize their full potential. And let us support working families by supporting paid family leave."
