US President Donald Trump has withdrawn his healthcare bill after it failed to gain enough support to pass in Congress.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he and Trump agreed to pull the vote, after it became apparent it would not get the minimum of 215 Republican votes needed.

Repealing and replacing the programme known as Obamacare was one of President Trump’s major election pledges.

Republicans currently have a majority in both the House and the Senate.

However, some Republicans were unhappy that the bill cut health coverage too severely, while others felt the changes did not go far enough.
