Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) after playing a round of golf with President Trump and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, expressed optimism about repealing Obamacare. "We had a great day with the president. Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of healthcare. I continue to be very optimistic that we are getting closer and closer to an agreement on repealing Obamacare," Paul said. Trump and Paul had been at odds over the Republicans proposed replacement for Obamacare.
Paul tweeted later, "I had a great time today today with President Trump and believe that we are getting closer to an agreement on health care!"

Trump tweeted on Sunday that Republicans may still be able to unite around the healhcare issue. This followed a week of barbs he tweeted that were directed at the Freedom Caucus over the failure of American Health Care Act to advance to the House floor.
