Donald Trump scored his first major legislative victory today as the US House of Representatives gave its final stamp of approval on his sweeping tax bill.

The House voted 224 to 201 to approve the bill, which will slash taxes for corporations from 35 per cent to 21 per cent.

Now, Trump only has to sign the bill into law, which he is expected to do before the end of the year.

“We are making America great again,” Trump said at a White House celebration with Republicans. “Ultimately what does it mean? It means jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said.
