Trump privately criticizes Republican health care plan he celebrated

quote [ By multiple accounts, the Republican president denounced the House Republicans’ proposal in no uncertain terms. A CNN report, for example, quoted a source saying the bill was “cold-hearted.” BuzzFeed’s article said Trump used the phrase “son of a bitch” to describe the pending legislation.

Before the meeting with Senate Republicans began in earnest, the president told his guests that the Senate version will be “generous, kind, with heart.” Left unsaid was Trump’s apparent belief that the House version, which he touted vigorously, wasn’t generous or kind, and obviously lacked heart. ]

No. I think all he cares about is looking good for his constituency and the media. Removing 24 million from health insurance is not good optics. If he comes across as compassionate, then he wins. Both he and the GOP aren't stupid. Removing his base from insurance is a death blow.

The only way he signs the bill if there is some kind of spin they can conjure in public perception that makes it seem like he's looking out for the opioid addicted coal miner.
