This represents a shift since Friday, when Trump blamed Democrats for the bill's failure, and expressed magnanimity toward Republicans, who control the House and the Senate. With no Democrats pledged to vote for the Republican replacement, leadership had to seek consensus among its members. "I want us to become a unified majority, and that means we're going to sit down and talk things out until we get there, and that's exactly what we're doing".
Meadows explained, "When we start to grow the economy at 4, 4.1 percent, it actually not only increases wages, but it puts more money in Americans' pockets each and every day".
"The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P.to continue if they stop this plan!" the President wrote about the group of Conservative House Republicans. "I think there has been a lot of flexibility in terms of some of my contacts and conservatives in terms of not making it totally offset", he said. But documentary filmmaker and noted Democrat Michael Moore, who has been very active during Trump's first 60 days in office and in the years leading up to his election, says that now is not the time to "gloat". So, my question is - was this what 50 million people thought they were getting when they voted for this administration?
Democrats were quick to jump on the defeat.
Instead, Moore thinks that Democrats should be steeling themselves for the fight to come; it's not even close to being over.
Several Republican moderates were also opposed to the health care bill, particularly after Trump and Ryan made changes to appease the Freedom Caucus.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats are willing to work with Republicans on an effort to improve the ACA. "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future". "We never said it was flawless. We just said repeal was off the table".
Priebus said Trump spoke to Ryan Saturday and doesn't want him to step down.
"In a odd way, this really merged our teams - our team in the House with the president's team - even more closely", Ryan reportedly told the GOP donors. He enjoyed his relationship with Paul Ryan. "He enjoys his relationship with Paul Ryan, thinks that Paul Ryan is a great speaker of the House".
But Trump is unlikely to change his conservative tendencies -at least when it comes to cutting taxes and moving the economy forward. "It seems to me folks should go say, 'Hey, what about the other groups". And I think that there was nothing that could be added to the bill that the Freedom Caucus would ever vote yes on.
Trump has tweeted about the group three times since Friday.
