Trump, Meeting with Health Care 'Victims,' Declares Obamacare 'Dead'

That's why they lost the House; they lost the Senate; they lost the White House.

In a tweet early Wednesday, Trump also announced Christopher Wray as his pick to succeed Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Upon arrival, Trump said at the private event in front of Air Force One at Cincinnati's Lunken Municipal Airport that "Democrats are destroying healthcare in this country".

On Tuesday, Anthem, one of the nation's biggest health insurers says it will not return to Ohio's public insurance exchanges next year, which could leave consumers in 20 counties without an option for buying individual coverage on the exchange.

Senior aides touted an air traffic control overhaul plan and prepared infrastructure-themed remarks that Trump delivered rather speedily Thursday in OH; then their boss repeatedly swerved off message.

In excerpts of his remarks released by the White House, Trump is expected to say that inland waterways are critical to commerce, but now depend on a dilapidated system.

The president continued his verbal assault on Democratic lawmakers for continuing to oppose the proposed American Health Care Act - the GOP's effort in the Senate to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

In his speech, Trump announced that he would not afford the country the opportunity to become a "museum of former glory", ensuring that extensive infrastructure projects would be supported. Trump continued. "We are spending money all over the world, except here".

'If we gave you the greatest plan in the history of the world, you would have no Democratic votes, ' he contended.

"A private-sector-driven infrastructure plan means tolls, tolls, tolls - paid by average, working Americans", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY. Trump was holding a series of meetings on June 6 with members of Congress, but they're all Republicans.

At a panel hosted by the Business Roundtable on Wednesday, Cordish said the problem wasn't a lack of government funding for worker training but ineffective programs.

Trump said he wants to send developmental projects back to the privatized industry and condemned government involvement for costly, timely, and shoddy production.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday promoted plans for $1 trillion (R12.84 trillion) in USA infrastructure spending aimed at boosting jobs and the economy in a move that could shift attention from a probe into alleged ties between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Trump is scheduled to speak in Cincinnati as part of what the White House has billed as a week-long effort to formally launch the initiative to deliver the $1 trillion in infrastructure investment he has promised to upgrade crumbling roads, bridges, airports and other assets.

As the White House tries to shift the focus back to Trump's legislative agenda, the president traveled to the Rivertowne Marina in Cincinnati to argue his case for efforts to fix aging levees, dams, locks and ports, as well as his larger public works aims.
