Sean Spicer Won't Deny Trump Aides' Collusion With Russian Operatives

Spicer added that Trump was "a bit disappointed" in the fate of the healthcare bill, which was created to replace the 2010 Obamacare law. "This is the train that's leaving the station, this is the choice we were waiting for, this is the pledge that people have made to the American people".
