‘Let Obamacare implode’: Trump tweets after health reform fails in Senate

US Republicans failed spectacularly Friday in their latest effort to dismantle Obamacare, leaving the party in stunned disarray and President Donald Trump’s dreams of repealing his predecessor’s health reforms on ice.

US President Donald Trump urged Republican congressional leaders Friday to let Obamacare “implode” rather than immediately work to fix it, after the Senate rejected a bill that would repeal the health care law.

“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down,” Trump tweeted, referring to the 49-51 vote in the dead of night on a controversial plan that would have partially dismantled the Affordable Care Act.

“As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal,” the president said.
