Trump: "Nobody knew health care could be so complicated"

After meeting with governors, President Trump has come to an important conclusion: Reforming the health care system is immensely difficult.

QuoteWe have come up with a solution that's really, really – I think – very good. Now I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.

Trump said he's spent time discussing the issue with Govs. Scott Walker, Rick Scott and Chris Christie.

19 years ago today at 11:19am, high school students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris walked into Columbine High School in Colorado and opened fire. They killed 12 students and a teacher, injured 23 others, and killed themselves in the library just after noon. Five hours passed before the situation was under control.

Fast forward: Starting at 10am today, students across the nation, including those from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, have been staging more than 2,600 walkouts to honor the 19th anniversary of the massacre and demand action from lawmakers on gun legislation, according to the National School Walkout organizer’s web site.
