Fox News’ Shep Rips Trump: If Healthcare Fails ‘Republicans Do Own It’
Donald Trump’s favorite news outlet is starting to turn on him slowly. On Tuesday, Fox News’ Shepard Smith said that Trump was wrong for blaming Democrats if the healthcare system breaks down.
Trump said on Tuesday, after the Republican’s plan to repeal Obamacare failed, that his plan now is to “let Obamacare fail.”
“I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll just let Obamacare fail. We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it,” Trump said Tuesday in the White House.
“But politically, Trump does own it,” Smith retorted. “Because voters gave them control of Washington. It was a central promise of Republicans’ campaigns. For 8 years, they told constituents and voters give us control and we will repeal and replace Obamacare.”
The fact that Trump will put blame on others because he couldn’t follow through with his promise speaks a lot about his character.
