WH: Trump Only 'Complimentary' To Australian PM On Universal Health Care

US President Donald Trump in NY to meet Turnbull

Just hours after House Republicans passed a health care bill that has been almost universally derided for its ineffective and misguided proposals, President Trump held an worldwide press conference where he straight up praised universal health care as a better system.

Trump, high from the thrill of advancing his first major legislative priority, hosted lawmakers in the Rose Garden at the White House to mark the occasion.

"Of course the Australians have better healthcare than we do -everybody does".

U.S. President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are aiming to put a rocky start behind when they meet for the first time and commemorate the 75th anniversary of an important World War II battle.

He also praised Australia's health care system, saying it was better than the US's.

The next comment Trump made, however, amused Sen. "We have a fantastic relationship, I love Australia, I always have", Trump told reporters who witnessed a portion of the meeting between the two politicians in a room near the ship's main dining area.

NY [U.S.], May 5: Calling the reports of a heated phone call discussion with Australian Prime Minister in January "a big exaggeration", President Donald Trump welcomed Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday, saying his relationship with him is "fantastic". "I'll be sure to quote you on the floor of the Senate", Sanders tweeted.

It comes as a recent Harvard Medical School study found almost 45,000 annual deaths in America are associated with a lack of health insurance.

It was originally introduced by the left-wing government of former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1975 to provide the "most equitable and efficient means of providing health insurance coverage for all Australians".

US Senator Bernie Sanders quickly picked up on the remark which came after Trump's new bill passed by a handful of votes.

'I think he believes that they have a good healthcare system for Australia, ' she said.

Trump said for almost a century Americans and Australians have "fought together, bled together". The office of the Australian Prime Minister released a transcript of the press conference in NY on Saturday.

Family members are known for having disagreements and then making up.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes played a clip of Trump's comment while interviewing Sanders on May 4.

Donald Trump's approach to most issues is routinely incoherent, but Australia offers a special case.

"Again, that was more family than formal".

"Everyone's talking about this phone call".

Mr Trump, in his haphazard way, denied his January 28 phone call with Mr Turnbull was a rocky one.

"We get along great".

"Got a little testy, got a little bit testy but that's OK. They saw the flames erupt into the air, and they saw the true cost of war in the faces of the heroes that never returned", said Trump.
