Mike Huckabee, one of President Donald Trump's most vocal supporters, is warning the commander in chief to beware of trying to work with Democrats on a new national healthcare plan.

"In light of the Republican Senate's abject failure to keep its promise to repeal Obamacare and come up with a better, market-based system, President Trump said . . . we'll just let that program continue on its current death spiral . . . [and] predicted that as it failed on its own, Democrats would come around to working with Republicans to replace it," the former Arkansas governor said on MikeHuckabee.com.

"I think he might be too optimistic, or maybe he's yet to figure out that Washington doesn't work rationally, like the business world. Democrats know (and count on their media allies to hammer home) that voters expected Republicans to do something about this awful program.

"With them having failed to act, if it goes under and leaves people without coverage, most will blame whoever was in charge when it happened. This is how politics works."

Huckabee, a two-time GOP presidential candidate, added that Democrats will not "humble themselves and come with hat-in-hand to work with Republicans to save Obamacare from collapse."

"Obamacare was designed to collapse, so it could be replaced with single-payer government healthcare. They expected Hillary [Clinton] to be in office when that happened and sign it into law," Huckabee said.

"If it collapses in 2018, just in time for Democrats to blame it on Republicans before the next election, that's exactly what Democrats will do."
