A regular surrogate for Trump during the campaign, Epshteyn will be moving on from his White House post.

“Justice With Judge Jeanine” anchor said there was no coordination with the president.

Trump used to criticize Obama for golfing. Then he became a president who golfs, too.

Breitbart blames the Republican health-care failure on Paul Ryan, not President Trump

According to the hard-right news site, the House speaker owned this bill and therefore owns this failure.

Donald Trump played a game of chicken with House Republicans. Then he blinked. Bigly.

Dealmaker Donald comes up short.

If they can’t do it now, Republicans can probably kiss health-care reform goodbye

And maybe tax reform as well.

Some Republicans blamed Ryan. Some blamed Trump. Some blamed the Freedom Caucus. They all have their work cut out to show the nation they can get things done.

The vice president also praised the president's lobbying work on the bill that failed Friday.

Speaking to a group of small business owners in Charleston, W.Va., Vice president Mike Pence said he was grateful to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans in their effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

At a gathering of small business owners in Charleston, W.Va., Vice president Mike Pence called Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch one of the “most respected, qualified and mainstream” nominees to the court in American history.

Will the president adjust his course or plow ahead after failing his first big legislative test?

During a floor debate on a bill to prohibit abortion in cases when the fetus shows signs of Down Syndrome or another genetic disorder, Oklahoma state Rep. George Faught (R-Muskogee) also addressed instances when babies are born out of rape or incest.

Conservative opposition to the health-care overhaul was no surprise. A promise of a “no” vote from the Appropriations Committee chairman was something else.

There was no big rally at the Capitol, because the activism in districts was seen as more effective.

‘I couldn’t get them,’ he said of Republicans opposed to the bill. ‘They just wouldn’t do it.’

If confirmed to the Supreme Court, Trump’s nominee fit comfortably on the court’s right wing.

The opposition continued despite President Trump’s ultimatum: Vote for the bill, or reject it and move on. The House Rules Committee approved the revised legislation early Friday.

As LBJ said, a president can't just yell 'frog' and expect everybody to jump.

Governing is hard.

His skills as a “closer” were not enough to rescue the GOP health-care bill.

Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry says “the United States is an important country. And it is an important relationship. The administration is one part of it. There's Congress, there are think tanks. We want to deal with all of them."

President Trump promised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act “immediately” and “on Day 1” while on the campaign trail. But now, he claims he never said he'd get health care reform done quickly.

“So, we just pulled it,” Trump said of he bill he had touted.
