“I think we are going to see the Republican Party move away from a Trump-centric approach,” she told CNN.
“And then the Democratic Party, I think, will become much more supportive of the president, and will take the mantle of the leader of the Republican party.”
But the Republican-controlled Senate is not in play for Trump, who is in the final stretch of the presidential election.GOP lawmakers say they expect the party to vote on a replacement to the Affordable Care Act this week, which would repeal much of the law and replace it with a system similar to Obamacare.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said on Sunday that he expects a vote on the bill to pass this week.
“The White House will make a decision on the Senate floor this week on whether to proceed with the repeal and replace of Obamacare,” McCain said.
McCain, who said he was in Arizona for the White House Easter Egg Roll on Saturday, said the Senate will have to vote again this week to pass the bill.
“We are going in with the understanding that we are not going to repeal Obamacare but we are certainly going to get it repealed,” he said.
The House and Senate have been in the midst of the longest and most contentious legislative debate in U.S. history over the ACA, which has become a signature domestic achievement of President Donald Trump.
It will take more than two months to vote to replace Obamacare, and the final legislation could be as far away as January.
Democrats say they plan to hold a vote in the Senate on the legislation on Monday and the Senate’s Republican leader said he expects to be able to secure the support of 60 senators.
The Senate is also scheduled to vote next week on a $1.9 trillion measure to fund the government through mid-March.
