Trump: Health Care ‘A Little Tougher Without McCain’s Vote, I’ll Be Honest’

President Trump mentioned John McCain again tonight as he talked up Luther Strange as an ally on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Trump’s first mention of the Arizona Republican––hours after his bombshell announcement against the Graham-Cassidy bill––elicited boos from the audience.

When he talked about health care later, the President said, “Maybe we’re gonna do it now, it’s a little tougher without McCain’s vote, I’ll be honest.”

But, he added, if they get knocked down they’ll just get back up again and again until they can finally repeal and replace Obamacare.

Trump said Republicans who aren’t joining this fight to repeal and replace are forgetting what they ran on and are “not doing a service to the people that they represent.”
