Sanders rejoices as Trump inadvertently endorses universal healthcare

Sanders, who has previously offered to work with Trump on health care, literally burst into laughter.

Hours after scoring a victory in the House to effectively kill Obamacare, US President Donald Trump praised Australia's universal health care system during a press conference with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are aiming to put a rocky start behind when they meet for the first time and commemorate the 75th anniversary of an important World War II battle. "Thank you Mr. President.Thank you Mr. President".

Australia's government provides nationalized health care, and the country spends about half as much as the US does to provide it.

In the most contentious congressional vote of Trump's presidency on Thursday, lawmakers voted 217 to 213 to pass the bill, the American Health Care Act, and to dismantle Obama's Affordable Care Act. "I'll be sure to quote you on the floor of the Senate", Sanders tweeted. The White House later agreed to honor the agreement and the two leaders have worked to move beyond the phone call.

For example, just before his inauguration, Trump told the Washington Post that his goal is "insurance for everybody" - ironically, exactly what Obamacare tried to move the country closer toward.

"It's going to be fantastic health care", Trump said.

Australia instituted its universal and government-funded health care programme, Medicare, in 1984.

"We had a great telephone call", Trump said Thursday.

"But when everything comes together with the inclusion of Phase 2, we will have truly great healthcare!", he added. "It's tried to be a one-size-fits-all, and that's the opposite of what the plan is that we are putting in place right now, it allows for state flexibility". He said the USA would have "great" health care very soon.

"Premiums are going to come down substantially", Trump said. What Sanders said: "I think he was simply being complimentary of the prime minister and I don't think it was anything more than that..."

"The U.S. spends more on health care than any other country, but what we get for these significant resources falls short in terms of access to care, affordability, and coordination", said Commonwealth Fund President Dr. David Blumenthal.

The video claims that "while the USA has the most expensive and ineffective health care system in the world, Australia ranks 6 out of 55 in efficiency".
