Trump to meet with GOP senators after health-care effort collapses

President Trump will meet with Republican senators at the White House on Wednesday after last-ditch GOP efforts to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement failed to muster enough support to proceed, The Hill reports. Nevertheless, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday night that even though he is lacking support, he will hold the vote "early next week" at the request of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump's lunch Wednesday will center on health care, in addition to other issues, and he could possibly encourage letting ObamaCare "fail."

"We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it," Trump has said. "Democrats are going to come to us."
