Fox’s Bob Beckel: ‘Is Trump Really Gonna Try to Lay This on the Democrats?’

Shortly after the House floor vote was pulled on the GOP’s American Health Care Act on Friday afternoon, Fox News’s Bob Beckel couldn’t believe that President Donald Trump tried to blame Democrats for its failure.

Speaking with Fox News anchor Bret Baier on The Five Friday, Beckel was incredulous. “Is he really gonna try to lay this on the Democrats?” he said.

Beckel referenced the vote on President Barack Obama‘s Affordable Care Act, which failed to receive any Republican support.

“I guess history doesn’t stick with this guy very well, because we didn’t get a single Republican vote on Obamacare,” Baier said, lamenting the lack of bipartisanship in both instances.

“I think one of the things you could say definitively is that’s not the best way to run a government, is to have no votes from the other side,” Baier said.
