Trump Reaches Out to Democrats in Bid for 'Great' Health Law

News ID: 1539294 Service: Other Media

TEHRAN (Tasnim) - President Donald Trump is reaching out to Democrats to see if they "want to do a great HealthCare Bill" after Republicans have failed so far to fulfill their yearslong promise to repeal and replace the Obama health law.

Trump tweeted that he called Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer Friday. Trump said the Obama health law "is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!"

There has been no immediate word from Schumer about Trump's tweets, AP reported.

The president has suggested that he'd be open to negotiating with Democrats on health care.

But there have been no clear signs of a compromise between Republicans who have wanted to scrap the Affordable Care Act since it became law in 2010, and Democrats who want to protect it.
