Australian health care system better than US

Miranda GreerMay 15, 2017

Just hours after his party passed a health care bill that would take insurance away from millions of people, President Trump said Australia's universal health care system was better than America's privately run one.

Following a tight vote in the House for a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump met with Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York Thursday evening.

In a tweet, Sanders said Trump was right when he praised Australia's system of universal health care in a meeting with Prime Minister Turnbull in NY.

'Thank you Mr Trump for admitting that universal health care is the better way to go, ' Mr Sanders later tweeted.

Trump's new healthcare plan still has to pass the Senate, and Sanders pledged to quote the president's backing of the Australian system while debating the bill on the Senate floor. "Thank you Mr. President.Thank you Mr. President". In Australia and every other major country on Earth, they guarantee healthcare to all people.

Mr Turnbull said Mr Trump was different to former president Barack Obama.

"We had a great call", he said, adding, "I mean, we're not babies". "Or systems throughout Europe", Sanders said.

Mr Trump also described Australia as one of the most attractive places in the world. "We have a fantastic relationship, I love Australia, I always have", Trump told reporters who witnessed a portion of the meeting between the two politicians in a room near the ship's main dining area.

But the best part was Bernie Sanders happened to be watching, and like so many other observers, he just couldn't stop laughing.

He continued: "Let's take a look at the Australian healthcare system".

Donald Trump's approach to most issues is routinely incoherent, but Australia offers a special case.

Trump effectively praised single-payer with his comments.

An official with the Australian government said the President's decision to make Turnbull wait was "an awesome snub", CNN reported.

Donald Trump used it when talking to journalists after his first meeting with Malcolm Turnbull.

Several former senior Australian diplomats have also urged Canberra to rethink ties with the U.S. in light of China's rise. He was sitting next to an Australian leader, but had he been sitting next to the prime minister of India, Trump probably would've said the same thing. The premiums are going to come down very substantially.

Turnbull underscored the closeness of the two countries.
