President Donald Trump revealed his plan in the event the GOP effort fails: Allow Obamcare to fail and let Democrats take the blame, sources at the gathering told CNN.
During the hour-long meeting, sources said Trump chastised the groups — including Club for Growth, the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Patriots — for calling the House GOP proposal “Obamacare lite,” warning the tea party activists, “you are helping the other side.”
In true Trump fashion, the President jumped into salesman mode, sources at the meeting said.
“This is going to be great. You’re going to make it even greater,” the President told the group. “I’m going to work hard to get it done.”
