Trump claims GOP will be the ‘party of health care,’ after urging judge to toss out Obamacare
USA Today

Endorsing the idea that the courts should strike down all of former president Barack Obama’s health care law, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he and the Republicans will embrace the issue ahead of next year’s elections.

“The Republican Party will soon be known as the party of health care – you watch,” Trump told reporters after the Justice Department asked an appeals court to uphold a Texas judge’s decision to invalidate the entire law known as “Obamacare.”

Trump tweeted a similar sentiment just minutes before a meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill.
