Trump: There Was ‘No Give-Up’ on Health Care

President Trump briefly addressed health care during his joint presser with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni this afternoon. One reporter asked him about whether it’s more important for him to get a vote on health care or a government funding bill. Trump responded by saying he wants both done. He briefly brought up the punditry surrounding the previous health care efforts in Congress, saying, “There was never a give-up. The press sort of reported there was, like, a give-up. There’s no give-up… Remember, it took Obamacare 17 months.” Trump indicated, after the American Health Care Act was pulled from the House floor, that he wanted to move on to tax reform, while Speaker Paul Ryan said, “We’re gonna be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” There is reporting now, however, that House Republicans may have found a compromise that could conceivably pass this time.
