Perhaps now that Trump is friendlier with the Dems than GOP, the media will let that particular comment slide.

Finally, Trump also tweeted that he would veto any single payer law that reaches his desk.

…I told Republicans to approve healthcare fast or this would happen. But don’t worry, I will veto because I love our country & its people.
