After the GOP healthcare bill fizzles, Trump blames the Democrats and says he ‘learned a lot about loyalty’ – Brian Bennett – After failing to land a deal on the healthcare bill, President Trump on Friday blamed Democrats, even though the GOP controls Congress and the White House, and made few overtures across the aisle when pushing the bill. “When you get no votes from the other side – meaning Democrats – it is really a difficult situation,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office after a revolt by Republican lawmakers forced House leaders to stop a vote on their bid to overhaul the Affordable Care Act.

Trump insisted that the current healthcare law, commonly known as Obamacare, will collapse under its own weight, and then Democrats will want to make a deal with the White House.
