New Delhi [India], August 10 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has criticised his own party's Senate leader Mitch McConnell for failing to get ObamaCare repealed and replaced. "Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations," but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?" Trump tweeted. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Senator Mitch McConnell said I had &quot;excessive expectations,&quot; but I don&#39;t think so.

"Now our new president has of course not been in this line of work before. And I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process," McConnell said. Republicans in the Senate had failed to pass a plan last month to repeal and replace Obamacare. (ANI)
