President Donald Trump insisted Tuesday that the Republican Party will “soon be known as the party of health care.”
During a visit to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Trump made comments to reporters about the Mueller investigation and future health care legislation.
“I think it went very high up. It was a disgrace,” Trump said of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. “This will never happen again. We cannot let it ever happen again. It went very high up. And it started fairly low. But with instructions from the high up. This should never happen to a president again. We can’t allow that to take place.”
“The Mueller report could not have been better. It said no obstruction, no collusion, it could not have been better,” he added.
Before leaving, Trump hinted that Republicans would make another attempt to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
“Let me tell you exactly what my message is,” Trump stated. “The Republican Party will soon be known as the party of health care. You watch.”
Earlier in the day, the president had made a similar statement on Twitter.
The Republican Party will become “The Party of Healthcare!”ADVERTISEMENT

There are enough votes to impeach Trump if it comes to the floor: CNN’s April Ryan quotes congressman
On Wednesday, the House voted 332 to 95 to table articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump brought forth by Rep. Al Green (D-TX). Democrats were divided, with 137 members agreeing to table the resolution. All 194 Republicans and independent Justin Amash also voted to do so.
But despite the resounding defeat for Green's measure, one congressman told CNN commentator and American Urban Radio Network director April Ryan that while many Democrats want to continue with investigations for the time being, he believes there would be enough votes to pass it if it actually made it to the floor.
Pelosi slaps Trump with a backhanded compliment: ‘He’s a great distractor — that’s what this is about’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.
At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.
"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."
"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."
‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist
Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.
Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.
"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"
As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.
"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
