Trump Lies About Pushing For Another Obamacare Vote

Politico reports:

President Trump on Wednesday claimed he never wanted Congress to vote on an ObamaCare replacement ahead of the 2020 elections, even though he unexpectedly revived the issue and pushed for swift action just days ago.

The president denied that pressure from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) led him to change his plans, even though he announced his decision after speaking with the top GOP senator on Monday.

The president backed off a previous demand earlier this week for Congress to quickly pass a replacement for the Affordable Care Act after McConnell warned him in a private conversation that the upper chamber would not take up the issue ahead of 2020.
