Despite President Donald Trump saying he is done pushing healthcare reform for now, White House officials are still calling Republican lawmakers looking to make a deal, Politico is reporting.

The website noted the GOP healthcare bill was shot down, but the White House has not stopped its efforts to replace Obamacare.

"The thinking is that the White House can't just give up and walk away from their central campaign promise to repeal Obamacare," Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman write for Politico. "The effort has left Hill Republicans scratching their heads."

Before leaving on a two-week recess, Republican lawmakers had met with White House officials in an unsuccessful effort to reach a compromise on a healthcare bill, CBS News reported. But after the failure of the initial bill, there remains "bad blood" within Republican ranks.

And Politico noted one Republican observed the White House is not so good at internal congressional dynamics.

The leaders of the healthcare reform effort, budget director Mick Mulvaney, Vice President Mike Pence and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price were once lawmakers, but all lost internal party elections while in Congress, Politico reported.
