House Speaker Paul Ryan says President Donald Trump is deeply involved in efforts to scrap Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act and helping GOP leaders persuade reluctant lawmakers.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Ryan insisted that he and the White House are working together on the issue, dismissing reports that the two are at odds.

"No palace intrigue," Ryan said.

The Wisconsin Republican said the goal is to get a bill that can pass and the president is "making it easier and better for us" to pass their health care bill.

Republicans have been scrambling to salvage their bill after Congress' analysts said some 24 million would be shoved off insurance in the next decade under the GOP bill.
