It’s possible Trump doesn’t know the Senate is using budget reconciliation on this health bill — he tweeted Monday that the Senate should do away with the filibuster, and censured Democrats for obstructing his agenda, without acknowledging that the filibuster isn’t relevant in the health care fight.

One thing is clear, however: This is a major setback for Trump, who has yet to have a single major legislative victory in his time in office. And it looks like he’s not happy.
