Trump’s revision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on March 24, 2017 in
Chicago, Illinois.

The White House is warning
conservative lawmakers to either follow President ’s
agenda in the wake of a recent embarrassment over healthcare or face his
disregard for them in future legislative fights.

The warning was relayed Sunday via White House chief of staff .
The
Trump administration hopes to push for the tax reform plan this spring
following a failure to get enough support from the members of his own
party in the US House of Representatives on Friday.
Speaking on
“Fox Sunday,” Priebus said the administration was ready to work
both with Republican and moderate Democratic lawmakers to push for other
Trump agendas, including a renewed healthcare reform plan as well as
his proposed budget and a tax reform plan.

“If
we can come up with a bill that accomplishes the goals of the president
with Republicans alone, we’ll take it and we’ll move forward with it,”
Priebus (pictured above) said, yet adding that, “I think it’s more or
less a warning shot that we’re willing to talk to anyone. We always have
been and I think more so now than ever.”
The Republicans’
healthcare reform bill, the American Health Care Act, was pulled from
consideration in the US House of Representatives due to dwindling
support from Republicans, serving as a major blow to their presidential
nominee for the 2016  presidential election, Trump.
Repealing
former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, Obamacare, has
been one of the New York billionaire’s key campaign pledges.
Trump had also promised to confront the US establishment as an outsider and make the “best deals.”
