Trump says he expects a health care deal soon
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump says he expects to make a deal on health care, even though his first attempt failed just a few days ago.
Trump is hosting a reception for senators and their spouses at the White House. It attracted both Republicans and Democrats.
He says the bipartisan crowd is "a very good thing" and predicts a deal on health care will happen "very quickly."
He says: "I know that we're all going to make a deal on health care. And that's such an easy one."
Trump also sees potential for working with Democrats on other issues like infrastructure.
He says: "Hopefully it'll start being bipartisan. Because everybody really wants the same thing: We want greatness for this country that we love."
