White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders warned Democrats on Tuesday that they would have to "clean up the mess" after President Donald Trump said he would "let Obamacare fail."


During Tuesday's off-camera White House briefing, Sanders was asked why it was "acceptable" to let Obamacare falter in the wake of the Republicans failure pass a bill in the Senate, according to reporters who were in the room.

"Hopefully with the collapse of the program [Democrats] put in place," she said, "they be more wiling to come to the table to clean up the mess."

“I think the thing that’s dead here is Obamacare," Sanders added.
