Trump does not think U.S. should copy Australia's health system: White House

But Vice President Mike Pence assured Turnbull during a visit to Australia last month that the Trump administration will honor it, but "that doesn't mean we admire the agreement".

US President Donald Trump has met Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull after a tense first phone call between the pair hit the headlines in January.

"It's going to be fantastic health care", Trump said of the bill passed by the House on Thursday.

The president made the remark on the day that he heralded the House Republican vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Former Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, an advocate for single-payer subsidized healthcare systems, was quick to respond to Trump's comments on twitter, saying he would use Trump's comments to argue that the new bill be blocked in the Senate.

During a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in NY on Thursday, US President Donald Trump voiced his optimism about the American Health Care Act.

March has spent a lot of time covering the U.S. health care system for an Australian audience, and she says she finds it "mind boggling", "expensive", and "convoluted".

It comes as a recent Harvard Medical School study found almost 45,000 annual deaths in America are associated with a lack of health insurance.

"It could also impact survivors of rape or domestic violence".

Arsenal shudder as Spurs surpass them
The 35th fixture of the English Premier League has been played this weekend, and many numbers and facts have been recorded. Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen in action with Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey at White Hart Lane.

"Wait a minute. the president has just said it", Sanders said.

Speaking at the event on board the USS Intrepid, Mr Turnbull said the "stability and prosperity of our region over so many decades has been secured - and is secured today - by the United States", a commitment he said was renewed by President Trump. In the United States, on the other hand, both public and private costs rose from $7,680 to $9,450 per capita.

Trump spoke at a gala dinner aboard the USS Intrepid in NY to commemorate the 75th anniversary of that battle.

"We had a great call", he said with a smile.

"It got a little bit testy", Trump then admitted.

The meeting was the first face-to-face encounter between President Trump and Prime Minister Turnbull.

He was sitting next to an Australian leader, but had he been sitting next to the prime minister of India, Trump probably would've said the same thing.

Mr Trump came to power vowing to halt illegal immigrants entering the USA and forcing refugees to undergo extreme vetting.

"Thanks also to the legendary talented golfer Greg Norman".
