Australian health care system better than US


If fully enacted - something far from guaranteed given the Senate's skepticism of the bill - the American Health Care Act would take the U.S. even further away from universal coverage.

On the occasion of Trump's return to NY, at least three protests were held in the city, including in the vicinity of Trump Tower where the US President had lived.

The president was in NY with Turnbull to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea. Joined by their wives, the two leaders later attended a gala to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea. "It's been worked out for a long time", Trump said, as the pair, dressing in black tie, smiled and swapped legislative war stories. The call aroused criticism and raised questions about his diplomatic skills.

NY has largely opposed Mr Trump, who received only 18% of the city's vote in November's presidential election. Under the agreement, Australia is to resettle refugees from three Central American countries.

The pair were originally meant to meet in midtown Manhattan, but the introduction was delayed after Trump made a decision to remain in Washington to celebrate Republicans' House vote on a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The measure has yet to come before the Senate.

Trump, when talking to the media, laid it on thickly as he promised to come to Australia. But we had a great call.

So for Milwaukee to dominate two out of three games in a series against a veteran Toronto team shows potential for the future. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 23 points and 9.6 rebounds while Greg Monroe is averaging 14.6 points and 7.4 rebounds.

US President Donald Trump says Australia has a better health care system than the US, a comment that's attracting attention because Australia offers universal health care, which Republicans oppose. "We'll quote you on the floor of the Senate", Senator Bernie Sanders, a staunch opponent of the Obamacare repeal, told the cable network MSNBC.

He said Twitter is a way to "sort of circumvent". "I do think we have better healthcare in Australia".

After meeting Turnbull, Pence said the United States would take the refugees but added it "doesn't mean we admire the agreement".

"I shouldn't say this to our great gentleman and my friend from Australia, because you have better health care than we do". Trump is likely to discuss North Korea, US-Australia relations.

Their famously testy phone call last January, which seemed such a spicy prelude to their first face-to-face meeting, was obliterated in a torrent of Trumpisms. Hundreds of opponents, shouted slogans as his motorcade passed. Trump did not plan to visit Trump Tower, his home in midtown Manhattan where his wife, first lady Melania Trump, and their young son Barron still live, but instead was to spend the weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.
