U.S. President Donald Trump is bemoaning what he calls "the level of hostility" among the parties that has stymied bipartisanship. Trump has yet to explicitly say whether he will support the legislation as it is now written. Walker said he's spoken with McConnell and other Senate leaders and called on them to change the bill before holding a vote.
