President Trump made some remarks from the White House reacting to the American Health Care Act being pulled from the House floor, repeatedly criticizing the Democrats for giving them zero support on this.

Trump said that they were close to passing it, and he warned about Obamacare “exploding” in the next year. Then, maybe, he added, Democrats will want to come together to work on health care.

“I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer,” the president said, “because now they own Obamacare.”

Trump praised Paul Ryan for the job he did and he didn’t even criticize Republican opponents of the bill that much, simply saying he was “disappointed” that the House Freedom Caucus opposed it.
