President Trump takes to Twitter to taunt Mitch McConnell over failure to repeal 'Obamacare'

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says the president has "some frustration" with the Senate's top Republican. 

It's the latest development in a continuing feud between President Donald Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Trump taunted McConnell on Thursday, using Twitter to express disbelief that the Senate leader couldn't get Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Asked afterward about Trump's relationship with McConnell, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders says: "You can see the president's tweets. Obviously there's some frustration. I don't have anything more to add."

The president bristled this week after McConnell told an audience that Trump had "not been in this line of work before" and had "excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process."
