Bernie Sanders Can't Stop Laughing At Trump's Health Care Confession

"Let us move to a Medicare-for-all system that does what every other major country on Earth does: guarantee health care to all people at a fraction of the cost per capita that we spend", Mr Sanders said referring to the system under which senior citizens in the United States receive free or heavily subsidised health care. And Turnbull couldn't help but smirk and laugh at Trump's answer. Story Continued Below "From the beaches of Normandy - a vicious, vicious fight - to the jungles of Vietnam, to the desert landscapes of the Middle East ..." "We have a failing health care - I shouldn't say this to our great gentleman and my friend from Australia because you have better health care than we do".

Under the Trump replacement issues like diabetes, rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, C-sections, sleep apnea, asthma, depression, and anxiety could be considered grounds for denying coverage or significantly higher premiums depending on the insurance company.

"The president was complimenting a foreign leader on the operations of their healthcare system and that it didn't mean anything more than that", she told reporters.

When asked about how Mr Trump compared to his predecessor Barack Obama, Mr Turnbull suggested the alliance between Australia and the United States transcended personalities.


The Prime Minister met the US President for the first time face to face on Thursday night aboard the USS Intrepid, docked on the Hudson River.

The US leader raised eyebrows when he told Mr Turnbull shortly after the bill passed that Australia had "better health care than we do".

March has spent a lot of time covering the U.S. health care system for an Australian audience, and she says she finds it "mind boggling", "expensive", and "convoluted".

"I have been delighted and honoured to meet each of them".


"That was more family than formal, a very, very warm encounter and a great evening".

"Of course the Australians have better healthcare than we do - everybody does".

Mr Trump and his wife Melania shared a table with Mr Turnbull and his wife Lucy at an exclusive dinner on board the decommissioned aircraft carrier to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea. "Right now Obamacare is failing; we have a failing healthcare". "Thank goodness, it's true we had a very nice phone call".

Mr Turnbull wrapped his two-day visit with a breakfast meeting with 20 chief executives including News Corp's Robert Thomson, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, Alcoa chief executive Roy Harvey and Morgan Stanley chief executive chairman James Gorman.


"Thanks also to the legendary talented golfer Greg Norman".
