As the president discussed the Keystone XL pipeline from the Oval Office ahead of the vote, the president was asked what will happen if the health care bill fails.

“We’ll have to see what happens,” he said.

Asked if Ryan should remain, Trump answered, “Yes.”

Though the House was scheduled to vote Thursday night, the vote was delayed until Friday afternoon.
