Earlier this month, President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan came together in an attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. After Republicans failed to get on the same page and unify behind the plan, Trump pulled the bill before a vote could even take place, leaving the party in disarray.

Ryan on Trump

For the better part of the last eight years, Republicans have made opposing Obamacare one of their top priorities, which also became a major talking point for any politicians running for office. Donald Trump vowed to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's landmark piece of legislation if he was elected, and with Republicans in majority-control of Congress, it seemed like a sure thing to get done.

After Trump was unable to convince enough Republican lawmakers to back his plan, chaos resulted, with the president openly attacking those who opposed the bill. During an interview for CBS' "This Morning" on March 30, Paul Ryan warned the GOP about Trump's potential next move.

Joining CBS News host Norah O’Donnell was Speaker of the House Paul Ryan who was asked about Donald Trump and his role in the failed Health Care Bill. "Oh, he was deeply involved," Ryan said, adding, "That's the thing I was so pleased and impressed with." While Ryan said he was happy to see that the president "really rolled up his sleeves" to back the bill in question, he did issue a warning to his fellow Republicans about what concerns him the most about Trump.

Ryan's warning

"What I worry about, Norah, is that if we don't do this, he'll just go and work with Democrats," Paul Ryan said, while adding, "that's hardly a conservative thing." Ryan went on to label Donald Trump a "can do president," but said that if Republicans in Congress don't get on board with the administration, "I worry we'll push the president into working with Democrats." As of press time, the GOP health care bill is not expected to move forward, and the president is likely to move on to tax reform or another issue on his agenda.
