President Donald Trump said in a new interview that he still has confidence in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) in the wake of another failed Republican attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.
"Do you still have confidence in Mitch McConnell?" Fox News anchor Pete Hegseth asked in an interview airing Thursday on "Fox and Friends."
"I do," Trump said. "Look, I've dealt with Mitch for a long time, and I think he has to get rid of the filibuster rule. I think it's just a disaster for the Republican Party, because it means you need 60 votes on most pieces of legislation, and you're not going to get it."
Senate Republicans said they would not vote on the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill when it became clear they didn't have the votes for passage.
