Today I award President Trump the blue ribbon for useless proclamations. The award is for his statement “My Plan now is to let Obamacare Fail.

How can you let fail, what has clearly already failed?

In his first on-camera remarks about the stalemate in the Senate, Trump said it “will be a lot easier” to allow ObamaCare to falter on its own.

“I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll let ObamaCare fail,” he told reporters in the Roosevelt Room. “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. We’ll let ObamaCare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us.”

Trump said Tuesday the key to advancing his priorities was expanding the GOP’s 52-seat majority in the Senate.

“We’re going to have to go out and get more Republicans elected in ’18,” he said. “I’ll be working very hard for that to happen. It would be nice to get Democrat support but really they are obstructionists. They have no ideas.”
