Loudmouth President

Although here's one of Foghorn's previous Tweets on the 'art of the deal'.
Now this couldn't happen to a nicer person, if you ask me - read the full story via the following link to The Independent.

Donald Trump's flagship healthcare bill has been killed off after failing to secure enough support from Republicans, in a major embarrassment for the US President during his first attempt at passing legislation through the House.

The decision, made just minutes before the vote was due to take place, will be viewed as a significant set back for Mr Trump, who has promised to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan told Mr Trump just ahead of the scheduled Friday vote that there were too many dissenting Republicans to pass the American Health Care Act. The White House could only afford to have 22 Republicans vote 'no' on the bill.
