Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) went golfing with President Donald Trump on Sunday at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia and left the outing saying he was hopeful that Republicans could repeal Obamacare.

“We had a great day with the President. Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of health care. I continue to be very optimistic that we are getting closer and closer to an agreement on repealing Obamacare,” Paul told White House pool reporters on Sunday afternoon.

Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, joined Trump and Paul for golf.

Paul had been a staunch opponent of the House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that Republican leaders were forced to pull before a full vote on the House floor.
