Trump Says He’s Not Too Worried About The Republican Holdouts On The Senate Health Care Bill

President Trump on Sunday morning said that he thinks the Republican senators who said they won’t vote for the Obamacare repeal and replace bill will come around to it after some negotiation.

“I don’t think we’re that far off. I don’t think we’re that far off,” Trump told Pete Hegseth of Fox and Friends. “Famous last words right? I think we’re going to get there.”

Four Senate Republicans came out against the health care bill draft — which was written behind closed doors — when it was revealed on Thursday. (Trump referred to four people in his taped interview.) On Friday, Nevada Sen. Dean Heller also came out against it.

Senate Republicans need 50 of their 52 members to pass the bill — along with tie-breaker from Vice President Pence. It is expected to go to the floor next week.

Brexit secretary David Davis “pretty sure” UK will secure a good deal

LONDON — Brexit secretary David Davis has said he is “pretty sure” but not “100 percent certain” that he can negotiate a free trade deal when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.

“It’s a negotiation… you can be sure there’ll be a deal [but] the deal I want is the free trade agreement, the customs agreement and so on,” Davis said on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

“I said it will be turbulent [and] there will be difficulties but at the end of the operation there is a point of common interest in both sides.

“[This is] where we [the UK] gain by being able to exploit global markets [and] where they [the EU] gain by having a friendly and comfortable ally, not an irritating member of the club.”

Davis added that he would be prepared “to walk away” if the UK was given a “punishment deal.” He said: “We have to plan for that.”

Andrew Marr also quizzed Davis on whether a Conservative leadership challenge to “under pressure” Tory leader Theresa May would represent a catastrophe to Brexit negotiations.

“Yes,” was Davis’s answer.

“Let me be absolutely plain about this: number one, I happen to think we have got a very good prime minister. I know she is coming under a lot of pressure at the moment, but I have seen her in action [and] I think she’s bold, takes her time, and makes good decisions.

“Point number two is, I want a stable backdrop to this Brexit negotiation.”
