Spicer: Trump’s ‘going to get’ AHCA vote on Friday

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday evening said President Trump is “going to get” the House to vote on the American Health Care Act on Friday.

“My understanding, he’s going to get it. The president has been working the phones, he’s had in-person meetings throughout the day down on Capitol Hill, here at the White House,” Spicer told Fox News fill-in host Eric Bolling.

“We could have continued through the night and voted in the middle of the night, that’s what Democrats have done in the past. That’s not what we’re gonna do. We wanted to do this in broad daylight tomorrow, when every one of the American people can see not only the bill that we put online days ago for everyone to read, but actually can watch the debate take place and watch the vote go down,” Spicer added.

The House was scheduled to vote on the Obamacare replacement bill on Thursday but indefinitely postponed it. Late Thursday, House Republicans announced they planned to vote on the new bill Friday.
