Trump also returned to the subject, tweeting Friday afternoon, "Of course the Australians have better healthcare than we do -everybody does", adding that USA health care "will soon be great".

"We acknowledged and thanked those great veterans of the Battle of the Coral Sea, that battle where Australian and American sailors and aviators turned the tide of war".

A couple hours after celebrating the passage of the Republican health care bill through the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump met with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, in NY.

When asked about how Mr Trump compared to his predecessor Barack Obama, Mr Turnbull suggested the alliance between Australia and the USA transcended personalities. "We've had a very good relationship and I'm very proud of the relationship".

Sanders was also forced to defend Trump's decision to spend a long weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, about 40 miles west of NY, his home where he spent only a few hours on Thursday night.

"I think he was simply being complimentary of the prime minister and I don't think it was anything more than that", Sanders said of Trump's comment during her first on-camera briefing Friday.

Mr Turnbull said Mr Trump was different to former president Barack Obama.

Liverpool break down the middle, and the ball is worked to Coutinho by Wijnaldum, who jinks past the defenders and shoots home. However, Lovren says he is desperate to leave a lasting impression on Liverpool's fans come the end of his stay on Merseyside.

This is despite the fact that health care experts from across the political spectrum have said that Trump's health care bill is unworkable and suffers from fatal flaws and could lead to Americans dropping out of the health care market. "That's great. Let's take a look at the Australian healthcare system, and let's move".

A video accompanying the tweet explains Australia's Medicare system in positive terms, giving viewers a brief summation of what Aussies benefit from when they are sick.

Upon hearing Trump's praise for Australia's universal health care system, Sanders laughed out loud during an interview with Chris Hayeson MSNBC.

The White House attempted to walk back the president's comment Friday, claiming Trump had been merely looking to compliment the Australian prime minister during a bit of small talk.

'What works in Australia may not work in the United States'. "And let's move - maybe he wants to take a look at the Canadian system or systems throughout Europe".

Eyeing a victory, a jubilant Trump tweeted during the vote that, if successful, Republicans would gather for "big press conference at the attractive Rose Garden of the White House" immediately afterwards.

However, other provisions - like the controversial mandates of Obamacare requiring insurance companies to cover mental health services, contraception, paediatric care, and other items - will require a two-thirds majority in order to pass. "Thank goodness, it's true we had a very nice phone call". "I don't think it was much more than that". "It's not getting through the Senate".
