Trump says he spoke with Schumer, who says deal on replacing ObamaCare is 'off the table'

President Trump acknowledged that he indeed phoned Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer earlier this week about a possible bipartisan health care bill – an apparent sign that he remains frustrated with the GOP’s inability to repeal and replace ObamaCare.   

“I called Chuck Schumer yesterday to see if the Dems want to do a great HealthCare Bill. ObamaCare is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!" Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

The phone call Friday was reported first by Axios.

However, Schumer appeared to put the brakes on any deal that would dismantle ObamaCare, former Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature 2010 heath care law.
