As lawmakers struggle to pass the Senate healthcare bill President Trump is focusing the White House on foreign policy .
A vote on the Senate healthcare bill has been pushed back at least a week after Senator John McCain had eye surgery and is now recovering.
The slowdown on healthcare and general domestic policy has administration officials looking for victories in other areas. Namely, addressing the tensions in Syria, Afghanistan and North Korea.
On Monday at the White House, Press Secretary Sean Spicer expressed frustration with actions taken specifically by Democratic lawmakers.
“It’s time for Senate Democrats to drop this pointless and petty gamesmanship and start working with this administration on behalf of the American people,” Press Secretary Spicer said.
The White House is expected to release new foreign policy plans in the coming days. The strategies are a culmination of ideas from the President’s visits abroad and the work of his national security team in Washington.
