House leaders came through with the votes to give Mr Trump a major political win more than a month after Republicans' first attempt to pass a health care bill went down in a humiliating defeat. The Republican president became irritated that he was expected to honour an agreement made by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, to accept as many as 1,250 refugees held in Australian processing centres on remote Pacific islands.

Now that the House has passed the bill, Trump stated he is confident the Senate will pass the bill, too.

"Thank you to my attractive sisters for the support of my #WomenWhoWorkBook!"

Asked what the White House thinks about labeling the health care reform plan "Trumpcare", Sanders said President Donald Trump isn't focused on the name. "We'll quote you on the floor of the Senate".

Mr Trump also described Australia as one of the most handsome places in the world.

Independent scorekeepers at the Congressional Budget Office have not yet analyzed the bill, but they estimated an earlier version would have led to 24 million fewer Americans with insurance coverage than under current law.

"It could also impact survivors of rape or domestic violence".

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House deputy press secretary, had suggested earlier on Friday that Trump was being "complimentary" of Turnbull. She said he was complimenting a foreign leader on the "operations of their health care system" and that he "didn't mean anything more than that".

President Donald Trump has a way with words, you could say: he's especially skilled at inadvertently blurting out opinions on subjects he apparently knows nothing about.

Australia's healthcare system is mostly funded by the government while relying on private health insurance for some services. "We reaffirmed the tremendous friendship between the United States and Australia and the vital importance of our security and our alliance".

"It's great to be with you", Mr Trump told the prime minister.

"I think he believes that they have a good healthcare system for Australia".

Family members are known for having disagreements and then making up.

He also laughed off the president's remarks in an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes Thursday night.

The Australian government said that the President's decision to make Turnbull wait was "an fantastic snub", CNN reported.

- It looks like the U.S. economy is perking up under President Trump.

Trump and Turnbull were set to mark the anniversary of that battle with speeches at a dinner aboard the USS Intrepid. Trump said, addressing Turnbull.

Trump said the refugee deal had been "worked out for a long time" and that reporters had exaggerated the phone call.

"Under Obamacare, the Medicaid program here in the U.S. expanded quite a lot", says March.

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.
