Trump stumped on healthcare

The attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare fails in the Senate. It had been a key pledge of President Trump.

Repealing and replacing Obamacare had been a key pledge of the Republicans for years, and then of Donald Trump. But Republicans couldn't agree among themselves what to replace it with -- and the entire attempt has failed, at least for now. Gary O'Donoghue on what it means for President Trump as he marks his first six months in office. Also in this programme/podcast: the king of Thailand makes himself tens of billions of dollars richer, at the stroke of a pen; the four Arab states blockading Qatar drop their demand for specific changes; and as Netflix clocks up 100 million viewers, we assess how it's changed our viewing habits.
