President Donald Trump pronounced Friday he is “100% behind” the GOP’s
medical bill, reporting that the media has not
reported fairly on the check or its support among Republican
lawmakers.

Trump’s comments came after a assembly with members of the
Republican Study Committee, a congress done up of about 170 more
regressive lawmakers. Trump said they are now “all yeses”
on the check after formerly being “noes or intensity noes.”

“The press has not been speaking scrupulously about how good this is
going to be,” Trump said. “It’s feign news. This is going to be
good for people.”

Republicans have been divided over the American Health Care Act,
the GOP’s bid to dissolution and reinstate Obamacare. But Rep. Steve
Scalise, the House infancy whip, who was seated next to Trump
when he addressed media on Friday, voiced confidence the
check will eventually collect enough “yes” votes. 

The House Freedom Caucus, a smaller organisation of regressive House
members, balked at Trump’s claim, tweeting that it still opposes the
legislation in its stream form.

Trump pronounced several changes have been done to the bill, but did
not yield details.

He also slammed the Affordable Care Act, better famous as
Obamacare, job it a “dead medical plan” that wouldn’t
tarry the next year but “massive subsidies.”

“Only since everybody knows it’s on its last failing feet, the
feign news is trying to contend good things about it,” Trump said.

The check upheld the House Budget Committee on Thursday and will
pierce next to the House Rules Committee. House Speaker Paul
Ryan is aiming for a full House opinion after next week on the
legislation.
