Trump says he believes block-grant healthcare bill will pass

WASHINGTON, Oct 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he believed Republicans had enough votes to pass a healthcare bill that would allocate block grants to states.

"As soon as we're finished with taxes ... we really feel like we have the votes to get block grants into the states where the states can much better manage this money and much better take care of the people," Trump told reporters.
