Donald Trump Told Senators to Make His "Mean" Health Care Plan Seem "Nice"

Trump told Republican senators that the health care bill he helped create is "mean" and too tough to defend to the people. He urged them to make the bill more "more generous and nice". This is backtracking and hypocritical, considering Trump lobbied and praised the bill when it wasn't his responsibility to make it a reality. It is unclear what exactly Trump thinks is mean in the bill, and apparently he did not give any directives on what he'd like to see revised.
