Actually I would argue that the Democrats have better leaders than the Republicans right now.The Democrats, without a leader, have become the party of obstruction.They are only interested in themselves and not in what's best for U.S.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2017
After this shot at the Dems Trump immediately jumped into selling some new and improved healthcare plan to his Twitter followers.
You can't compare anything to ObamaCare because ObamaCare is dead. Dems want billions to go to Insurance Companies to bail out donors....New— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2017
Wait, what?...healthcare plan is on its way. Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2017
So NOW the Republicans have a bill that covers preexisting conditions and brings down deductibles?
What kind of wizardry is this?
That's what John Dickerson wanted to know on Face the Nation this morning.
Of course that does not really pass the smell test..@POTUS on healthcare bill: “We have a clause that guarantees” coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. pic.twitter.com/L5NQPX5gCf— Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) April 30, 2017

It isn’t clear what Trump means when he claims that “pre-existing conditions” are in the bill. In fact, Republicans gutted protections for people with pre-existing conditions last week. On Tuesday, Republican leaders proposed an amendment to the latest version of the legislation that would raise premiums by thousands of dollars for people with pre-existing conditions and thus make health care unaffordable for many Americans.
That’s why it was so puzzling that Trump insisted pre-existing conditions were covered “beautifully.”
Journalists and health care experts, such as Andy Slavitt, Andy Slavitt, the former acting administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, all pointed out that the president doesn’t seem to be familiar with his party’s current plan or how it functions.
You see the problem is that Trump has been conditioned by the response of his most ardent supporters who swallow everything he says like guppies waiting for the fish food to fall into their open mouths, while more intelligent folks, let's call them "NOT Trump supporters," fact check everything he says and realize that he simply lies all of the damn time.
