President Trump’s latest tweet indicates he is still celebrating his first big legislative win with the passing of the American Health Care Act on Thursday. The House grabbed 217 yes votes to pass the bill – it needed to get 216.
Despite GOP senators stating that the bill that passed in the House will never pass in the Senate as written, the president’s tweet also indicates that he is already looking forward to phase two of the three-phase plan that makes up the new healthcare program.
The president tweeted on Friday:
“Big win in the House – very exciting! But when everything comes together with the inclusion of Phase 2, we will have truly great healthcare!”
