‘We’ll See What Happens’: Trump on Whether He Thinks AHCA Will Pass

During an announcement of the approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline, President Donald Trump was pressed by reporters on whether he thought the American Health Care Act would pass in the House of Representatives today.

“What will you do if your health care bill fails?” Trump was asked. “Mr. President, what will you do if your health care bill fails?”

“We’ll have to see,” the president responded.

Another reporter asked, “Do you think it’s going to pass?”

“We’ll see what happens,” Trump said.

POTUS was also tossed a question about whether he feels Paul Ryan should remain Speaker of the House if this bill fails to pass, with the president merely saying “yes.”

Last night, following a postponement of the House vote of the AHCA when it was apparent there weren’t enough votes in the GOP caucus, the White House announced that Trump was done negotiating and he was demanding a vote take place today.
