President Trump said he was “very disappointed” that the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act had failed in the Senate.

Speaking in the Roosevelt Room in an impromptu meeting with reporters, Trump said his new plan was to “let Obamacare fail” and wait for Democrats to come forward.

“I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll let Obamacare fail,” he said. “We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We’ll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us.”
