The failure to pass the new Healthcare Law and the sweeping denials by intelligence officials regarding British eavesdropping on Trump on behalf of Obama has not led to Trump apologizing or regretting his remarks: “I don’t regret anything because there is nothing you can do about it. You know if you issue hundreds of tweets and every once in a while you have a clinker, that’s not so bad.”

“I don’t regret anything because there is nothing that you can do about it,” US President Donald Trump told the Financial Times. “Now my last tweet … the one about being wiretapped, meaning surveilled. Guess what, it is turning out to be true.” However, intelligence officials deny claims regarding British eavesdropping on Trump on behalf of former US President Barack Obama.
The US President did not hesitate to relate to the difficult language that he used in contrast to his predecessors. He claims that the language of his predecessors did not help much for now the US has a $80 billion trade deficit: “Enough talk no action. We have to deliver.”
Trump also acknowledged that he did not hold a vote on the new Healthcare Law due to the fear that it would not pass the US Congress after US Speaker of the House Paul Ryan could not get a majority: “I don’t like to lose. But that wasn’t a definitive day. There was no reason to take a vote. I said, ‘Don’t take a vote’ and we will see what happens. But one way or another, I promised the people great healthcare.”
“And if we don’t get the Freedom Caucus there, that would be fine,” Trump stressed. “They’re friends of mine. Many of them have already left and many of them as you know have already given us their vote. But when you haze zero Democrats, you need close to 100 percent of the Republicans.”
