Trump on healthcare: ‘It’s going to be fine’

President Trump on Friday sought to reassure his supporters after the stunning failure of the Senate’s effort to repeal ObamaCare.
“It’s going to be fine,” he told reporters who shouted questions about the healthcare bill’s collapse.
Trump made the comments in Long Island, N.Y., where he will deliver a speech on gang violence.

Three Republican senators — John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) — voted with Democrats to torpedo the measure. 
Trump lashed out at those lawmakers in a tweet early Friday morning, doubling down on his pledge to let the law fail on its own. 
“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!” he tweeted.
Trump and Republican lawmakers ran on a promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and GOP leaders voiced their disappointment that the vote meant they won’t be able to follow through on it — at least for now.
