Trump called on Republicans not to give up on healthcare reform after he lost a crucial vote last week.
Don't give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace...and go to 51 votes (nuke option), get Cross State Lines & more.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2017
Meanwhile, Paul Ryan, speaker of the House of Representatives said it was "critical" the party gets on with its stalled tax reform programme.
Republicans urged Trump's new chief of staff, John Kelly, to restore order to the White House as questions emerge over its ability to pass legislation.
Karl Rove, a Republican strategist and former White House adviser to George W. Bush, today said Kelly will have to calm the drama, stop the leaks and bring in some discipline so Trump's administration can get things done.
Trump called Kelly in to replace Reince Priebus, who had been publicly attacked by Anthony Scaramucci, the White House's new director of communications.
