ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A vocal Republican critic of President Trump's healthcare push, Senator Rand Paul, golfed with the president on Sunday and talked healthcare. "We had a great day with the President today," Senator Paul said. "I remain very optimistic that we will get Obamacare repealed." Paul and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney joined the president at Trump National Golf Club outside of Washington. The trio was "discussing a variety of topics, including healthcare,", the White House said. The outing came hours after Trump tweeted that talks to rework the nation's healthcare law were still under way. Republican-led efforts to replace Obama's healthcare law were thrown into disarray 10 days ago after Republican leaders in the House of Representative had to withdraw their own legislation ahead of a vote due to insufficient support from conservative and moderate members of their own party.
