Trump, First Lady Host Lawmakers for Congressional Ball
President Donald Trump: "I want to thank Melania, a great first lady, for doing the declarations. ... And I'll tell you what she does it from the heart. She has done a terrific job. People love our first lady, so thank you very much." President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania hosted U.S. lawmakers and staff at the White House on Saturday, Dec. 15, as part of the Congressional Christmas Ball. Trump said the country has a chance to enjoy "great health care" now that a federal judge has ruled former President Barack Obama's signature health care law unconstitutional. President Donald Trump: "Exciting things happened over the last 24 hours. And if everybody's smart. …And if the Republicans and the Democrats get together, we are going to end up with incredible health care." U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor in Fort Worth, Texas, on Dec. 14 sided with a coalition of 20 states that argued, requiring people to pay for insurance coverage is illegal because a change in the tax law last year eliminated a penalty for not having health insurance.
