President Donald Trump is taking a victory lap in Ohio after the Senate voted to begin debating legislation aimed at dismantling former President Barack Obama's health care law.

Trump says at a Youngstown, Ohio, rally that, with that vote, Republicans are now one "step closer to liberating our citizens from this Obamacare nightmare and delivering great health care for the American people."

He asks, "You think that's easy? That's not easy."

Trump has been interrupted several times by protesters, just like he often was during the campaign.

His enthusiastic crowd has been responding with chants of "Drain the swamp!" and "CNN sucks!"
