President Donald Trump is arguing the health care debate has "really brought the Republican Party together."

He's noting that the party includes many different groups, from conservatives to more moderate Republicans, and that sometimes work at cross-purposes. But hashing out the details on health care, Trump says, helps lay the groundwork for other legislative lifts, such as overhauling the tax code. "This really helps it," he says.

He adds that he expects to have a "tremendous" four — or maybe even eight — years.

Flanked by Republican lawmakers in the Rose Garden, Trump called President Barack Obama's health care law a "catastrophe" and called the GOP bill "a great plan."

Trump said "premiums will be coming down, deductibles will be coming down."

Looking ahead, Trump said they'll celebrate "when we get it through the Senate, and there's so much spirit there."

The president reordered his schedule Thursday as he watched the health care developments.
