On Wednesday, during his interview on The 700 Club with Pat Robertson, Trump revealed that he would be “very angry” if the Senate can’t pass their bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act- aka Obamacare.
In the interview, Trump talked about how the Republicans have been promising to repeal Obamacare for years and now that Republicans are the majority, he stated that he’s “waiting” to sign the bill.
When asked if they couldn’t pull it off, he said that it would be “very bad.”
“Well, I don’t even want to talk about it, because I think it would be very bad. I will be very angry about it and a lot of people will be very upset,” Trump responded.
“But I’m sitting waiting for that bill to come to my desk. I hope that they do it. They’ve been promising it for years. They’ve been promising it ever since ObamaCare, which is failed. It’s a failed experiment. It is totally gone. It’s out of business, and we have to get this done. Repeal and Replace.”
Robertson asked if Mitch McConnell can pull this off, Trump responded, “He’s got to pull it off. Mitch has to pull it off. He’s working very hard. He’s got to pull it off.”
The revised bill is expected to be revealed on Thursday. They hope that more conservative and moderate senators who opposed it will be in favor of the updated version. They could only lose two votes to pass it, but there were at least 10 Republican senators who opposed the current bill.
It is still unclear if the changes will have 50 votes to approve the bill. The House also needs to approve the revised bill before it lands on Trump’s desk.
