President Trump Meeting with Majority Leader McConnell Following a luncheon meeting at the White House President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke to reporters about tax reform and health care legislation. Among other topics the president talked about his relationship with the Senate leader; the opioid crisis and his drug czar nominee, Representative Tom Marino (R-PA); and the Affordable Care Act. When asked about the four U.S. soldiers killed in Niger, the president said he planned to call the parents of the fallen service members, that “it is a difficult thing,” and that “President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls.” When pressed on this issue, he said President Obama probably did call families sometimes, and “maybe sometimes he didn’t. I don’t know. That’s what I was told.” close
