President Trump is spending the Christmas holiday with his family in Florida.

According to CBS News, he reportedly told friends at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, “You all just got a lot richer.”

The outlet notes Trump made the remark Friday night, hours after he signed the massive GOP tax bill in the Oval Office.

Proponents of the bill celebrate it as relief for the middle class that also provides a tax cut based spending stimulus for large corporations.

However, critics have blasted the legislation as being a giveaway to the rich.

“The rush to enact the tax bill was designed to mask — as a break for the middle class — what is, in fact, a $1.4 trillion package of benefits for key donors and lobbyists, the richest members of Congress, President Trump, his family and other families like his,” writes Thomas Edsall in a New York Times opinion piece.
