Trump reaches out directly to Democrats on healthcare bill

President Donald Trump said Oct. 7 that he had contacted U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., to discuss the prospects of working together on a healthcare bill.

In a tweet posted the morning of Oct. 7, Trump said he called Schumer to see if Democrats want to work with him on a "great" healthcare bill. The president reiterated his stance that the Affordable Care Act, implemented by the Obama administration, is "badly broken."

Schumer on Oct. 7 confirmed he spoke to the president about healthcare, saying he would be open to working on the issue but that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act was a non-starter.

"The president wanted to make another run at repeal and replace and I told the president that's off the table," Schumer said in a statement about the Trump call, which occurred Oct. 6. "If he wants to work together to improve the existing health care system, we Democrats are open to his suggestions."
