"Everybody" has better health care than the US

For his part, Turnbull had to achieve a delicate balance with the meeting - mend fences with Trump to get the alliance back on track, while also not appearing too deferential to the president, who is deeply unpopular with Australians.

Bernie Sanders has mocked Donald Trump after the president praised Australia's universal health care, just hours after Republicans voted to strip millions of Americans of theirs.

Trump made the remark shortly after a Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, was passed by the House of Representatives.

Trump also returned to the subject, tweeting Friday afternoon, "Of course the Australians have better healthcare than we do -everybody does", adding that USA health care "will soon be great".

The senator added that the Democrats would use Trump's comment against the GOP during congressional debates, stating "We'll quote you on the floor of the Senate".

You don't have to actually deny something, just call it fake news.

The ties between the allies were reinforced during the Battle of the Coral Sea, when both countries' warships and fighter planes battled the Japanese from May 4-8, 1942, forcing the Japanese navy to retreat for the first time in the war.

Not only that, but the refugee deal with Australia that the president described on Twitter as a "dumb deal" was also OK.

The federal government administers Australia's universal healthcare system.

Nevertheless, Mr Trump postponed Mr Turnbull to instead hold a lengthy celebratory press conference at the White House before boarding Air Force One and flying to NY.

Mr Turnbull chuckled and said: "Young at heart".

The president was in NY with Turnbull to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.

Pageau is now second in playoff goals with five, two behind Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel, who scored twice on Saturday. Fleury is sporting an impressive.934 save percentage this postseason, well above his career playoff average of.908.

Trump didn't hesitate to praise the bill, "It's a very good bill right now".

"But when everything comes together with the inclusion of Phase 2, we will have truly great healthcare!", he added.

No one has ever accused President Trump of being an ideologue. "We have a fantastic relationship, I love Australia, I always have".

Australia's healthcare system is mostly funded by the government while relying on private health insurance for some services.

He said North Korea, the Islamic State group and global trade were all discussed.

Mr Turnbull wrapped his two-day visit with a breakfast meeting with 20 chief executives including News Corp's Robert Thomson, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, Alcoa chief executive Roy Harvey and Morgan Stanley chief executive chairman James Gorman.
