WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump will meet with Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday ahead of the chamber’s vote on tax reform legislation, the White House said on Monday.

The Republican-controlled Congress is steaming ahead on its plan to overhaul the country’s tax code, in the hopes that it can finish the legislation before the end of the year.
