President Donald Trump is ready to tackle a campaign promise to reform the nation’s tax code, including revising the corporate tax rate.

Trump took to Twitter to challenge members of Congress to “move fast” on tax reform, saying it “is needed more than ever before.”

Per Town Hall:

President Trump urged Congress to act quickly on tax reform, writing on Twitter that the process “will soon begin.”

“The approval process for the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country will soon begin,” he wrote Wednesday on Twitter. “Move fast Congress!”

Not long after he followed up, again stressing the urgency of the matter, especially in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Trump is including some Democrats in the tax reform discussion:

On Tuesday, Trump met with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to discuss tax reform. The vulnerable Democrats in attendance included Sens. Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, and Heidi Heitkamp—all of whom are up for reelection in 2018.

Manchin released a statement about the dinner, saying he was “glad to join the President … to discuss how we can work together in a bipartisan manner on tax reform. We had a productive conversation about areas of agreement as well as areas where we will have to find compromise,” he wrote.

Heitkamp also spoke kindly about the meeting, saying it was a “good discussion.”

“It’s encouraging that this meeting included Republican and Democratic senators, as I’ve long said I want to work with those on both sides of the aisle on a comprehensive, permanent tax reform plan that works for North Dakota workers and retirees and helps grow the economy, and I hope these bipartisan discussions continue,” she said in a statement.

Trump tweeted out that Congress should act quickly on tax reform:
