Trump to give Congress a one-week window to repeal ‘Obamacare’

President Donald Trump plans to give lawmakers a one week window to act on the landmark Republican health care bill, a White House official told CNNMoney.

Trump plans the window to allow lawmakers to act in a more timely fashion, as lawmakers return from recess after the August recess.

“We want them to come back and get this done as quickly as possible, but we will be working with Congress to get this passed,” the official said.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House wasn’t immediately available to comment.

Trump has vowed to sign the legislation, known as the American Health Care Act, in the coming days.

The administration said in late September it was expecting to pass the bill, but some members of Congress are not yet on board.

Trump tweeted in October that the bill will not pass “anybody” and that it would be “disastrous” if the bill was not approved by Congress.
