BREAKING: ObamaCare remains as Trump asks House Republicans to withdraw healthcare bill

U.S. President Donald Trump has asked Speaker Paul Ryan to withdraw the healthcare bill.

Trump’s desire to repeal ObamaCare hit a setback as some Republicans opposed his new healthcare bill.

This refusal led the Republicans to scrap voting on the embattled health-care bill Friday.

Trump had on Thursday demanded a do-or-die vote on the longtime GOP priority.

The vote was called off by House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday after he visited the President Trump at the White House, according to a senior leadership aide.

To make the bill scale through, Trump personally met scores of lawmakers and travelled to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to address the full House Republican conference. The president “left everything on the field,” according to spokesman Sean Spicer.

According to top aides of the president, Trump had run out of patience: he wanted a vote Friday, win or lose, even if that meant leaving Obamacare in place.

“There’s some divisiveness within our conference now that’s not healthy,” said New York Republican Chris Collins, the first House members to endorse Trump during the campaign. “I’ve never seen this before. People are just refusing to talk to each other. They’re storming past each other. This is not good.”
