President Donald Trump is facing pressure to push through his tax reform package and gain a victory for the GOP, The Hill is reporting.

Republican lawmakers maintain they want Trump to be focused and disciplined and bring home a big win on taxes, according to The Hill.

"It does take presidential leadership," said House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., "Getting something like this done, which hasn't been done since 1986."

The website noted Trump has found himself locked in messy personal feuds. And even though he has traveled to promote his policies, the events often generate headlines not related to his legislative agenda.

Republican lawmakers fear that if they can't deliver on tax reform, they will not be able to hold onto power, The Hill said.

Meanwhile, Trump will leave on a 12-day trip to Asia on Nov. 3 — just as congressional leaders unveil their tax reform proposal. Trump is sending Cabinet members around the country to push for the tax plan while he is gone.

And GOP leaders say it is important he get out and push for the tax plan, The Hill reported.

"The president needs to go around the country and remind people the main reason we are doing this is to maximize economic growth," said Vin Weber, a Republican strategist and former congressman.

The White House noted Trump already has promoted the tax plan in events in Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana and Pennsylvania.

And even his daughter, Ivanka, has hit the road speaking in favor of the plan, CBS News noted.

"The president and the administration have repeatedly said the priority is middle income Americans ensuring that it has a positive additive effect for them but tax reform will impact everyone, simplification will impact everyone," she said during an Oct. 23 appearance in Pennsylvania.
