Washington: U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized conservative Republicans for nixing the party’s ObamaCare overhaul plan, saying, “Democrats are smiling” because the conservatives saved the struggling health care law and Planned Parenthood.
“Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!,” Trump tweeted.

On Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan cancelled the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority.
The conservative groups The Heritage Foundation and the fiscally conservative Club for Growth group also opposed the overall plan, written by Ryan and his leadership team and backed by Trump, according to Fox News.
Earlier, Vice-President Mike Pence said at a business event in Charleston, West Virginia that Trump is never going to stop fighting to keep his promises to the American people. (ANI)
