As he marks his first six months in office, U. S. President Donald Trump faces his biggest defeat yet with the collapse of the Health Care bill in the U.S. Senate.

Trump promised Americans his administration would repeal and replace Obamacare, but now the Senate will move forward to simply repeal the legislation.

This week a Washington Post-ABC News poll said Trump’s approval rating has slipped to 36-percent, down from 42-percent in April.

Former U.S. Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama held 59-percent approval at their six-month anniversaries.
