Standing in front of several "Obamacare victims", President Trump criticized Senate Republicans for not doing their job to end "the Obamacare nightmare" and urged his party to pass the Senate health bill and get rid of the Affordable Care Act once and for all.

  • "Obamacare is death... it's broken, it's gone."

Trump's bottom line: "We as a party must fulfill that solemn promise to the voters of this country to repeal and replace."
