President Trump called ObamaCare a “dead carcass” during an interview on Sunday’s “Fox & Friends Weekend” in which he discussed everything from his views on the current state of politics to passing a healthcare bill to Senator Elizabeth Warren, whom he not-so-fondly refers to as “Pocohontas”.
Trump spoke of the “rigged system,” adding that there are a lot of very bad things going on, because Republicans and Democrats don’t play well together. Marveling at the “level of hostility” he’s witnessing between the two sides, Trump slammed the theme of “resistance,” calling it “obstruction”. “Resist; obstruction… it’s a terrible thing for the people of this country.”
As an example of the incompetence he sees in Washington, Trump recalled, “I saw [Sen. Charles] Schumer (D-N.Y.) criticizing the bill a couple of weeks ago – and he had no idea what was in the bill… The Republican senators didn’t know because it wasn’t released.”
Trump also commented on the obvious anger of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who currently claims that people will die when ObamaCare is repealed. “She’s a hopeless case,” said Trump. “I call her Pocahontas – and that’s an insult to Pocahontas.”

Trump acknowledged that it won’t be easy to pass healthcare legislation that everyone can agree upon, but “I want to see a bill with heart,” he said, noting, “The alternative is the dead carcass of ObamaCare.”
