Trump was asked about the Obamacare disaster. The president told reporters there is a very good chance this latest attempt to fix Obamacare will pass.
Republicans need 50 votes to pass the bill.
President Trump also said he thought he would sign an Obamacare repeal on day one of his presidency.
President Trump: Again, we’ve been hearing about repeal and replace for seven years. I thought that when I won I would go to the Oval Office and sit down at my desk and there would be a healthcare bill on my desk, to be honest. And it hasn’t worked out that way.
That didn’t happen.
