Trump Confirms He Called House Health Care Bill ‘Mean’
HIS OWN SPOKESMAN
President Donald Trump confirmed in a new interview that he used the term “mean” to described the House of Representatives’ health care bill in a closed-door meeting with lawmakers. The news initially was initially leaked anonymously, and the White House declined to confirm that the president used that word to describe the legislation. Despite calling it “mean” in private, Trump championed the American Health Care Act when it was passed, celebrating with GOP members of Congress in the White House Rose Garden.
