I'm not saying it was his original plan. He thought it would be simple "Who knew healthcare could be so complicated". Now that he's realised 'Obamacare' is probably pretty good and removing it would fuck his voters. His gut is now just to leave it. As long as he pretends the ACA is different to Obamacare he can pretend its all good and his voters will be happy with it.

Just got back from Power Rangers. It was dumb fluff... and that's exactly what it needed to be.

Does anyone think that Trump is secretly happy that Trumpcare didn't pass. That way most of Trumps key demographics can keep receiving benefits. All he has to do is stop calling it Obamacare and start calling it the Affordable Care Act.
Nah, he's not a big picture guy. He's a 'nick as much shit as you can and get out' type fella. Reading between the lines isn't common among people who don't like to read.

I vote simple incompetence over Machiavellian manipulation where Drumpf is concerned.

Yeah, that's the big if. As my dad always says, "The Democrats have an amazing talent for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory."

In keeping with that....

Source: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/325810-fox-news-host-promoted-by-trump-calls-on-paul-ryan-to-step-down

Quote
Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose show President Trump urged his followers on Twitter to watch earlier in the day, opened her program on Saturday evening by calling on Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to step down.

"Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House. The reason: He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill, the one trumpeted to repeal and replace ObamaCare," Pirro said in her opening statement.

Which is exactly the type of dumbassity I expect from the Orange Piss Pot.  He has no idea how politics actually works and thinks this strong arm tactic is the way to go.  Couple this with Bannon having a shit list on his White House office wall and I expect some GOP seats to go blue come 2018 as Trump and Bannon seek to replace those republicans that were "disloyal" to him with more malleable puppets only to have the Dems swoop in and take those seats.

Ironbite-provided the Democrats not  shoot themselves in the ass.

He is secretly happy that the AHCA was pulled, because it makes Ryan look weak for being unable to keep his caucus in line.

Trump and Ryan don't exactly get along and Trump would like nothing more than to have as House Speaker someone as pliable and subservient as Mitch McConnell.

But McConnell is in the Senate and not congress. Who in Congress would be as compliant as McConnel

It depends if his close circle has explained it to him since I doubt he is insightful enough to realize it by himself. He probably believes the anti-obamacare propaganda and it's possible Ryan & co are have not even bothered to explain the real situation to him.
