President Donald Trump commented on his meeting with Senate Republicans on Tuesday, assuring his followers that it was a “love fest.”

“The meeting with Republican Senators yesterday, outside of Flake and Corker, was a love fest with standing ovations and great ideas for USA!” he wrote on Twitter:

The president appeared pleased with the meeting, despite much of the drama – before and after the meeting – that fueled cable news.

Retiring Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker repeatedly criticized the president throughout the day, protesting the new tone he brought to Washington, DC.

But Trump appeared optimistic about prospects for tax reform.

“Working hard on the biggest tax cut in U.S. history,” he wrote. “Great support from so many sides. Big winners will be the middle class, business & JOBS”:
