Trump: Senate health care bill ‘going to be very good’

President Donald Trump on Thursday signaled support for the newly unveiled Senate GOP health care bill, saying "it’s going to be very good."

His remarks come just hours after Senate Republicans revealed a discussion draft for their bill, which would repeal key aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

Trump spoke at the American Leadership in Emerging Technology event, which was part of the administration’s "tech week" theme.

When asked if the bill has enough heart, Trump replied "A little negotiation, but it’s going to be very good," according to a pool report.

Trump said he welcomes Democrats’ support, but slammed them for not offering any support to repeal their signature legislative item.

"Obamacare is dead and we’re putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated," Trump said. "We’d love to have some Democrats’ support but they’re obstructionists."
