Trump Threatens to Hit Congress Where it Hurts, Their Health Care

Trump Threatens to Hit Congress Where it Hurts, Their Health Care Read Transcript

Many have wondered what would happen if American business was

unleashed from the tremendous burden of government


It's something President Trump wants to see too.

The president told small business owners

at the White House Tuesday he's creating an environment where

small business can flourish.

America is on the verge of a golden age for small business.

We're ending job killing regulation.

These folks know that very well.

And we're really ending at a record place, I tell ya.

And pursuing bold tax cuts, so that our companies

can thrive, compete, and grow.

DALE HURD: The president also pointed out

that the stocks have been hitting record highs.

And unemployment has reached one of its lowest rates

in 10 years.

Another way Trump is pushing economic growth is tax reform.

Senate Republicans will bring a bill to the table

this fall using a fast track reconciliation process, which

would allow the bill to go forward without interference

from Democrats.

And the president is not giving up on health care

saying he wants a new plan in the Senate.

Over the weekend, he tweeted a warning to Congress.

Trump tweeted, if a new health care bill is not

approved quickly, bailouts for insurance companies

and bailouts for members of Congress will end very soon.

The president has repeatedly said,

Obamacare has to go one way or another.

Let Obamacare explode.

It is exploding right now.

You know I said from the beginning,

let Obamacare implode, and then do it.

DALE HURD: Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price

insisted Trump is just trying to move the debate

in the right direction.

That's why he keeps coming back to this and saying,

look, Senate do your job.

Congress, do your job.

It's not clear if Trump's threat to mess with Congress's

health care is real.

But it is clear that when it comes to the fight

to end Obamacare, the president seems determined to win.
