we wouldn't be here without our military. we're building it up stronger, bigger better than ever before. and general mattis can testify to that. and the other thing they want tax increases and we want major tax decreases. so they decided not to show up. they have been all talk and they have been no action. and now it's even worse. now it's not even talk. so they are not showing up for the meeting. i'll say this, in light of the missile launch probably they'll be here fairly quickly or discussions will start taking place pretty quickly. i think that we are in a very good position in terms of meeting we just had over at the capital with the republican senators it was outstanding. i think we have tremendous support. i was just informed that we had unanimous vote from the republican side at least we we have a unans
tax bill, and i think we're going to get it passed. i think it's going to pass and it's going to be very popular. it's going to have lots of adjustments before it ends. but the end result will be a very, very massive, the largest in the history of our country, tax cut. lots of good things are going to happen including bringing back to our country of -- it probably will end up being over $4 trillion, money offshore that's stagnant that companies and are just not able to bring it back. so, i think it's going to be a number over $4 trillion. corporate will be able to compete now against the world. if you look at china, if you look at so many other countries, you look at many other countries, china is at 15%. they're lower than us. we're getting it down to a level that is either going to be lower or right in the ballpark so we can compete much better with our companies, our great, great companies. and th
lots of other things. i'm very happy to see that the consumer confidence level is just about the highest it's ever been. in fact, i don't want to make any mistakes in front of the press because you'll get me on it, but to the best of my knowledge it's the highest it's ever been, consumer confidence has been setting records, confidence in the people leading their country. i will say i think it's going to go better and better. i do believe that this vote on taxes, which are really tax cuts and reform is going to be very, very important. so, we had a good day today. we had a phenomenal meeting with the republican senators. we had -- it was very special, that meeting. in many respects, i wish you could have been inside that room. it was very, very special, the camaraderie. somewhat of a love fest. they want to see it happen. they want to see it happen, not only for the republican party. i think much more importantly, they want to see it happen for the country because they know how po
for us to compete and win. and with that, i maybe will start with paul ryan to say a few words about where we stand with different things and and then mitch mcconnell. >> i'll say i think it's deeply regrettable our democratic colleagues chose not to join us today. for a bill to become a law congress passes a bill and the president passes a bill. congress and the white house always negotiate legislation. we have important work to do, deadlines to meet. we have a military in need of our support and that work needs to happen now. and i just think it's very regrettable our democratic colleagues in leadership chose to not participate because we have to negotiate these bills to get this work done for the people we represent and especially to help our military with these difficult situations we have. and i just hope that our friends in leadership on the other side of the aisle will choz to participate so we can get the people's work done. >> thank you. >> mr. president, i would just add that i've been in this position under a cou
i can't recall ever turning down an opportunity to go down to the white house. as the speaker mentioned only one person can sign a bill into law and that's the president of the united states. you cannot negotiate the omnibus spending bill without the person who signs the bill in the room. so, i think the democratic leaders in the house and senate need to understand the way the government works. and the administration has to be a part of the ultimate negotiation over what the spending level is going to be for the next year. >> well, we are very far apart because our views on crime and our views on immigration and the military, so many are different. but a lot of things have happened even over the last two hours with respect to the missile launch. we want our military funded and we want it funded now. it's going to be bigger,
ever before. but we want to get going on that now. so, that is the difference in all fairness from this morning. when i told them that we are way, way far away. and with that i may just have general mattis say just a couple of words about what he has found out. general, do you want to say just a couple of little pieces of information? >> the president, senator, speaker, a little over 2 1/2 hours ago north korea launched an inter-continental ballistic missile. it went higher, frankly, than any previous shot they've taken. it's a research and development effort on their part to continue building ballistic missiles that could threaten everywhere in the world basically. and in response the south koreans have fired some pinpoint missiles out into the water to make certain north korea understands that they could be ta
but the bottom line is it's a continued effort to build a threat, a ballistic missile threat that endangers world peace, regional peace, and certainly the united states. >> thank you, general. and we will take care of that situation. thank you all very much. i appreciate it. thank you. >> you've been watching an nbc news special report with the president responding to north korea firing yet another missile this afternoon. the first missile launch from the north in more than two months. president also was responding to the goings on on capitol hill today where the senate is considering the republican tax reform plan. >> announcer: news4 at 4:00 begins with breaking news. >> and we begin with several breaking news stories as we come on the air this afternoon, including that apparent ballistic missile launch by north korea. first the virginia man shot by u.s. park police earlier this month has d.

missile one that went higher than ever before according to the defense department. the launch happened 1:30 eastern time. the first launch of a missile in two months, it comes a week after the president designated north korea as a state sponsor of terror. the missile traveled about 620 miles, according to the report. it splashed down into the sea of japan and right now the pentagon is still evaluating this launch. but from the defense secretary a few moments ago as he was seated at the same table as the president, this launch went higher than before, it was an inter continental ballistic missile, one they characterize as research and development by north korea. and the president said we will, quote, take care of that situation. pat, back to you. >> all right, scott, thank you. and yet another breaking story at this hour. we're going to show you live pictures of a deadly crash on the inter loop of the beltway. here is a look at the scene. we are told a pedestrian was hit and killed between new hampshire avenue and i-95. no word yet on how this happened. we are making calls on this right now and we'll get you more informatiho
