Majority of Americans support ObamaCare

His administration has discussed other moves like curbing outreach programs that persuade people to buy coverage and not enforcing the tax penalty the statute imposes on those who remain uninsured.

Speaking to reporters Thursday afternoon, Trump declined to say whether McConnell should resign.

The Democrats' national bus tour is motoring through Iowa, targeting vulnerable House Republicans who voted to repeal Obamacare.

One of the Fox News stories amplified by Trump on Twitter on Friday notes that two GOP senators who've spoken out against Trump and his policies - Sen.

The GOP-controlled Senate failed to pass a health bill before it left for a summer break last week. Citing the "reality of the complexity of legislating" and the president's inexperience in government, McConnell said that he found criticism of the lack of progress "extremely irritating".

And by almost 2-to-1, most say it's good that the Senate rejected the GOP repeal-and-replace bill last month.

McConnell has no option but to find ways to deal and work with Trump.

ADVERTISEMENTA majority of Republicans, 68 percent, also thinks millions of illegal immigrants voted in the presidential election and 73 percent think voter fraud happens somewhat or very often.

The 2020 general election could well turn out to be a pivotal moment for the Republican Party as the Trump wing squares off against a freaky alliance of establishment GOP and never-Trump conservatives. "I think Donald Trump spoke to the American people during the campaign and that's why he's in office, because they're sick and exhausted of this kind of stuff happening in Washington, D.C., people saying, 'we can't do it, ' well why can't you do it?"

Only 16 percent of Republicans approve of the job Congress is doing, according to the latest Gallup poll. "While Congress is dithering about keeping its promise to repeal [Obamacare] President Trump is keeping his promises with rapid-fire speed". "No one is more qualified than Mitch McConnell to lead Senate in that effort". Sixty percent of respondents said that Trump and Republicans are responsible for the Affordable Care Act, but only 36 percent of Republicans and Trump supporters agreed with that proposition, with 56 percent and 53 percent, respectively, saying Democrats and former President Barack Obama are responsible. Were the Democratic Party to formulate anything resembling an appealing economic agenda, the GOP would be in real trouble next year.

Here's the thing: There's no question that Trump came out of the exchange looking worse.
