President Trump shot off a series of tweets early today, the Daily Beast reports, this time proposing that if the Senate GOP’s bid to overhaul the Affordable Care Act doesn’t pass, “they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!”
Notably, Trump’s proposal is the opposite of what he suggested after he won the election, but it does echo another pitch made Thursday by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who opposes the Senate bill because he believes it doesn’t go far enough. Paul’s suggestion was to split up the bill into a “clean repeal” that the whole of the GOP caucus can support, with a second health-care spending bill to come later. The president also tweeted about Chicago’s crime rate. He did not, however, target Joe Scarborough or Mika Brzezinski, despite the pair writing a scathing Washington Post op-ed that claimed he was “not well” after he attacked the Morning Joe co-hosts Thursday.
