President Trump put more pressure on Republicans to win the Senate healthcare vote on Sunday, tweeting that they should take the ‘nuke option’ to secure a majority because ‘the world is watching’.

In his early morning Twitter blast, Trump urged the GOP ‘not to give up’ on the stand-off despite a week of crushing congressional defeats.

‘Don’t give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace…and go to 51 votes (nuke option), get Cross State Lines & more,’ he wrote shortly after 7.30am.

Republicans failed to secure a majority on their ‘skinny’ version of a previously unsuccessful bill to repeal and replace Obamacare in a late-night vote on Thursday.
