Paul Ryan on Trump Allegedly Calling Health Care Bill ‘Mean’: ‘Misinterpretation’ of What He Said

By now, you’ve probably heard about the reports that President Trump called the House health care bill “mean,” even though he was publicly celebrating it. Speaker Paul Ryan today objected to that characterization. Fox News’ Bill Hemmer spoke with Ryan about the Senate tackling the health care bill and he brought up the reported comments from the president last week about the American Health Care Act. “Do you need to win him over?” Hemmer asked. Ryan said this in response:
“No, I don’t think that accurately reflects the President’s sentiments about the House health care bill. I think that was some kind of a misinterpretation of a private meeting. I’ve spoken to the president many, many times. He’s excited on what we did in the House.”

There is now reporting that in a meeting with tech CEOs yesterday, the President the Senate’s health care bill needs “more heart.” Watch above, via Fox News. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniac
