US President Donald Trump has blamed Democrats for the failure of his healthcare bill.

Both houses of Congress are controlled by Trump's Republican party but the bill was withdrawn on Friday because it could not get the votes required.

The last-minute retraction is seen as a huge blow to the president.

Repealing and replacing the healthcare programme known as Obamacare was one of his major election pledges.

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