President Donald Trump says that he has been very “deeply disappointed” by the collapse of the GOP effort to rewrite former President Barack Obama’s “Obamacare.”
President told the reporters that during a lunch with service members this Tuesday the Republicans have been talking for many years to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” but they have disappointed him.
Trump says it’s time to “Let Obamacare fail,” and “I’m not going to own it.”
Furthermore, letting Obamacare fail will ultimately impact Democrats to come forward and negotiate on the table.
President also opines that he does not blame the Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the very “decision” as the two or more Republican senators to come out against the legislation, always killing the bill to their best.
After the failure of the Senate GOP health care bill, President Trump said, “let Obamacare fail,” and blamed the Democrats. But it’s a difficult argument to make when Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, and after he promised again and again that he would get it done. Chip Reid reports.
