Friday was not "a victory for the American people" when House leaders pulled the American Health Care Act from a vote, and now President Donald Trump will turn his attention to job creation and tax reform, Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday.

"It was a victory for the status quo in Washington, D.C., and a victory for the disaster of Obamacare," Pence said during a speech in Scott Depot, West Virginia, where he appeared with Linda McMahon, the administrator for the Small Business Administration. "But I promise you that victory won't lost very long."

Pence noted that Trump tweeted earlier in the day that "Obamacare will continue to explode," but until then, the president will fight to keep his promises to Americans, and the next priority is "jobs, jobs, and jobs, for every American.

"We've been on that agenda," said Pence. "Businesses and consumers haven't been this confident in years, and by some measures for more than a decade. The era of slow growth is over ... he's already taken decisive action to protect jobs and workers and we will not stop until we end illegal immigration once and for all."

Taxes are also "next up," said Pence noting tax reform will lead to job creation.

"We'll roll our sleeves up and we'll cut taxes across board for working families, small businesses and family farms," said Pence. "Working with this Congress, President Trump will pass the largest tax cut since the days of Ronald Reagan, and we'll get this American economy moving again."

The reforms will include making the tax code "flatter and simpler and fair," Pence said. "There is an old joke about how the tax code in this country is 10 times the size of the Bible, with none of the good news."

The nation's tax code, said Pence, makes it too difficult for job creators and Americans to reach the American dream.

"We will also cut the corporate tax rates in America," said Pence. "We have one of the highest business taxes, and we'll cut to 15 percent, so American companies will invest in American operations to create American jobs."
