Trump Tweets: Don’t Listen to the Press, ‘Healthcare is Coming Along Great’ and ‘Will End in a Beautiful Picture!’
While Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was trying to sell the House GOP’s Obamacare replacement bill by delivering a PowerPoint presentation during a news conference, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to claim that everything was going swimmingly with the Republican plan.
Despite what you hear in the press, healthcare is coming along great. We are talking to many groups and it will end in a beautiful picture!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2017
Despite what Trump is stating in his tweet today, many conservative Republicans on the Hill have come out against this bill. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has described the proposal as “Obamacare Lite,” while Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told CNN yesterday that it was like receiving a “lump of coal” on Christmas morning.
