The Senate’s Obamacare repeal deal appears to be dead — but President Donald Trump is still crowing about it being an “impressive” achievement.
In remarks made on Tuesday, Trump boasted that 48 out of 52 Republican senators were on board with the repeal bill, which would have resulted in a 48-4 victory if the Senate consisted solely of Republicans.
“The vote would have been pretty close to, if you look at it, 48 to 4,” the president said. “That’s a pretty impressive vote by any standard.”
