Trump Backs Off Obamacare Replacement After Top GOP Leader Nixes The Idea
National Public Radio

President Trump, bowing to political reality, says he is putting off his thoughts of finding a replacement for the Affordable Care Act until after the 2020 election.

In remarks to reporters Tuesday, Trump said, “I wanted to put it after the election because we don’t have the House.” But it became clear that he didn’t have support for a replacement to Obamacare in the GOP-led Senate, either.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he “made it clear to [Trump] that we were not going to be doing that in the Senate.”
