Trump Says 'Everybody', Not Only Australia, Beats The US In Healthcare

The PM was joined by his wife Lucy as he met the President

"Again, he was complimenting the prime minister and we're focused on a healthcare plan that works here".

Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who had proposed a single-payer health care system during his 2016 presidential campaign, burst into laughter after seeing a clip of Trump praising the Australian system.

But Sanders, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination previous year, said the U.S. should look to Australia on health.

Trump was spending an extended weekend at his central New Jersey home, about 40 miles west of NY.

"The president was complimenting a foreign leader on the operations of their healthcare system and that it didn't mean anything more than that", a White House spokeswoman filling in for Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters.

"We have a failing healthcare", Mr Trump said.

Mr Turnbull received similar backlash on social media for his appraisal of President Trump's congressional victory, which is expected to leave 24 million more Americans without health coverage by 2026, Reuters reported. "Let's take a look at the Australian healthcare system, and let's move - maybe look at the Canadian healthcare system, or systems throughout Europe".

The president also lauded the American Health Care Act, which the House narrowly passed earlier Thursday and sent over to the Senate.

North Korea accuses US, South Korea of assassination attempt
Reclusive North Korea warned this week that USA hostility had brought the region to the brink of nuclear war. But he also said this week he would be willing to meet Kim Jong-un, in the right circumstances.

"Together we discussed crucial issues ranging from national security to trade to immigration and enhanced economic cooperation", said Trump of his meeting with Turnbull in his speech.

Ms Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump's remarks did not mean he thought the United States should adopt a similar system to Australia's.

During his speech, Mr Trump thanked Rupert Murdoch, who introduced him to the stage, Australian businessman Anthony Pratt and Australian golfer Greg Norman.

President Donald Trump meets with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull aboard the USS Intrepid, a decommissioned aircraft carrier docked in the Hudson River in New York, Thursday, May 4, 2017. "Let us move to a medicare for all system that does what every other major country does".

"What works in Australia may not work in the United States", she continued.

Republican House members have told how Trump called them frequently.

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. "We must not allow citizens with medical problems to go untreated because of financial problems or red tape".

"So it was a very, very warm, as I said, more family than formal". "It's not getting through the Senate".
