Trump to Price: Get the Votes to Repeal Obamacare, or You’re Fired

The president also put pressure on Sen. Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV) in her home state.

President Trump issued a half-joking warning to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price at the National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday night.

“You going to get the votes?” Trump asked Price about Obamacare repeal.

“He better get them, otherwise, I’ll say, ‘Tom, you’re fired!'” the president said.

During his speech, Trump put pressure on Sen. Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV), who has been a swing vote on the bill.
