Trump says Republican health care bill 'will get better'

President Donald Trump has said that a bill to overhaul the Obama health care law will "get even better" during a White House lunch with Republican senators.

President Trump is hosting Republican senators after a bill to repeal President Barack Obama's law collapsed in the Senate this week.

President Trump said on Twitter that GOP senators "MUST keep their promise to America".

The GOP has promised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act for seven years.

President Trump said: "Republicans never discuss how good their healthcare bill is, & it will get even better at lunchtime. The Dems scream death as OCare dies!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on Tuesday that the Senate would vote early next week on trying to move ahead on a straight-up repeal vote.
