POTUS Trump Fires Off Late Night Tweet After Senate Blocks Health Bill

President Trump fired off a mid night tweet after the Senate blocked the latest attempt by the GOP to repeal Obamacare in a late night (very early morning) vote, stalling one of President Trump’s main campaign promises. 

Who were the three GOP lawmakers who blocked the bill? Never Trumper Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona in a 49-51 vote. After McCain gave his thumbs down and said ‘no’, gasps could be heard from the Democrat side of the aisle (McCain’s friends).

Prior to the midnight showdown in the Senate, President Trump tweeted out, “Go Republican Senators, Go! Get there after waiting for 7 years. Give America great healthcare!”

After the GOP Senate blocked the ‘skinny repeal’ in a dramatic midnight showdown, President Trump tweeted, “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let Obamacare implode, then deal. Watch!”
