House Speaker Paul Ryan has pulled the GOP’s health care bill at President Donald Trump’s request, according to numerous media outlets.
As Bloomberg reports, the cancellation comes as “a growing number of Republicans” expressed their opposition to the latest version of the bill.
CNN states that Trump asked Paul Ryan to pull the bill before today’s vote following news that it would likely not pass.
ABC News, in the video below, reports that Trump communicated his request via a phone call after a surprise visit the Speaker made to the White House.
Robert Costa with the Washington Post alleges that the President spoke with him concerning the decision to drop the bill.
