WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he expected the conference committee hammering out tax legislation in Congress will work well and get the job done fast.

"I think something's going to be coming out of conference pretty quickly," Trump told reporters at the White House before meeting with Senate Republicans.

"We're all on the same page. There's a great spirit in the Republican party like I've never seen before, like a lot of people have said they have never seen before. They're never seen anything like this, the unity."
