Trump on Health Care Vote: 'We'll See What Happens'
Trump on Health Care Vote: 'We'll See What Happens'

President Donald Trump said "we'll see what happens" Friday morning as the Republican health care overhaul cleared a procedural hurdle on the way to a climactic vote on the bill later in the day. Republicans were plunging ahead to repeal and replace Obamacare despite uncertainty over whether they had the votes to prevail in what loomed as a monumental gamble for Trump and his GOP allies in Congress. Debate began hours after White House officials told fractious GOP lawmakers at a Thursday night Capitol meeting that Trump was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and would move on to the rest of his agenda, win or lose. "We'll see what happens," Trump said in response to a reporter's question about what happens if the vote on the Republican-backed health care bill fails in the House. Asked if House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., should remain as speaker if the bill fails, Trump said, "Yes."
