Senate delays Trumpcare vote until after recess

  |   Donald Trump

Senate Republican leaders have done an abrupt about-face on the Trumpcare bill: They're now planning to delay the vote to take up the bill until after the July 4 recess, according to two senior Republican aides. They say Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement at the beginning of today's Senate Republican lunch.

The bottom line: "Vote after break. McConnell wants to win. Going to make changes new score and win," said one aide.

What's next: A "full court press" from the White House, starting with Republican senators' meeting with President Trump this afternoon. "Work over the next 72 hrs to come to an agreement. Vote after the break," per another GOP aide.
