Chris Wallace to Priebus: Trump Didn’t Reach Out to Democrats on Health Care, Why’s He Blaming Them?

Chris Wallace pressed White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus this morning on why President Trump would blame Democrats for the health care bill tanking when he “never reached out to Democrats, he never offered Democrats a compromise.”

Priebus said that “it would be nice to get some Democrats on board” and called the president’s tweet taking a shot at the House Freedom Caucus “100 percent correct.”

He said, “I think the president’s disappointed in the number of people that he thought were loyal to him that weren’t.”

Priebus reiterated Trump’s desire to work with moderate Democrats and said he doesn’t want to be a “partisan president.”
