After the new healthcare bill that was supposed to replace the current bill, which is popularly known as the ‘Obama-care’ failed to pass through the congress last week, the relation between the US President Donald Trump and the House majority leader Paul Ryan has probably taken a turn for the worse. The new bill was expected to be put to voting on the House on last Thursday, a day marked by the seventh anniversary of the old bill. But the voting was initially postponed to Friday and then it was again canceled on Friday. As the opposition and the media targets ‘dealmaker’ Donald Trump for this failure, President Trump has allegedly showered his anger and frustrations towards Paul Ryan.
On March 25th, President Trump tweeted, “Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.” He usually endorses shows via his tweeter account whenever he is either due to appear or appeared already in a show but in this one he wasn’t there. Instead, it was all about criticism against the Republican Party for failing to pass the new health care bill. In that show, Judge Jeanine Pirro called for the resignation of Paul Ryan from his post as the House leader.
A rift between Paul Ryan and Donald Trump is not a new phenomenon. There were clashes many a time during the campaign but after the election, they were getting along well and a rift between the White House and congress will be in nobody’s interest. Trump has also taken a jab towards congressional freedom caucus which remains allegedly behind the failure.
