If the GOP can't get its act together and find a compromise on the American Health Care Act, Obamacare will remain law, a fed up President Trump told Republicans on Thursday night.

Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) confirmed the Trump administration's message after the meeting. Trump is done negotiating, he said."We have to have a vote tomorrow. He expects it to pass, but he's moving on if for some reason it didn't," Collins said.
