President Donald Trump readied himself to return to Washington, where the GOP’s health care reform effort was still in turmoil, this morning.

The commander in chief, who was in the French capital for the country’s Bastille Day celebration, said Vice President Mike Pence was ‘working hard’ on a reform bill and pushing GOP senators to ‘come through as they have promised’ and ‘do what is right for the people.’

‘Republicans Senators are working hard to get their failed ObamaCare replacement approved. I will be at my desk, pen in hand!’ he said in a set of tweets just before he joined France’s president and first lady at a military parade.

Senate Republicans are awash with ideas on how to repeal and replace Obamacare, a promise they’ve made to constituents for the last seven years, but still can’t seem to settle on a fix.

On Thursday, just before a new version of the existing Senate health care bill came out, CNN reported that Sens. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, and Bill Cassidy, a Republican from Louisiana, were unveiling their own plan to replace Obamacare.

‘We’re going to support Mitch’s effort with his new plan, but we wanted an alternative and we’re going to see which one can get 50 votes, we’re not undercutting Mitch, he’s not undercutting us,’ Graham explained during an interview on the network, referring to the efforts of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to get a health care bill passed.

Trump did not weigh in on the effort, specifically, in his tweets on Friday. He said more generally that it was ‘important’ that senators ‘get healthcare plan approved.’

‘After 7yrs of O’Care disaster, must happen!’ he said. ‘After all of these years of suffering thru ObamaCare, Republican Senators must come through as they have promised!’
