The White House and Republicans are still focused on passing a tax reform package despite tensions over the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady told CNBC on Wednesday.
"I think there's room for all of America to work with this White House and Congress to do this because, while there are divisions in the country, this is about delivering tax relief to all Americans," the Texas congressman said on "Squawk Alley. "
Some Republican lawmakers acted swiftly to condemn white supremacists after President Donald Trump blamed "both sides" for the violent clash in Charlottesville.
While many did not directly criticize the president, some Republican leaders were direct on Trump's remarks. Sen. John McCain tweeted: "There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so"
The president's words also prompted several CEOs and executives to leave Trump's special councils.
In regard to the president's comments, Brady said it is important for every leader, including Trump, to strongly condemn the KKK, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
On Tuesday, Brady told CNBC that Republicans on Capitol Hill and Trump will be able to revamp the U.S. tax code this year.
Brady said Wednesday that he's learned "not to pick certain dates" but said, "2017 is our year to deliver." He said the members working on tax reform are meeting sometimes "twice daily."
