President Donald Trump suffered a stunning political setback Friday in a Congress controlled by his own party when Republican leaders pulled legislation to overhaul the U.S. health care system, a major 2016 election campaign promise of the president and his allies. Republican leaders of the House of Representatives pulled the legislation due to a shortage of votes despite desperate lobbying by the White House and its allies in Congress. Amid a chaotic scramble for votes, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, who has championed the bill, met with Trump at the White House before the bill was pulled from the House floor after hours of debate. Ryan said he recommended that the legislation be withdrawn from the House floor because he did not have the votes to pass it, and that Trump agreed.
