(Reuters) – Highlights of the day for US President Donald Trump’s administration on Friday:

HEALTH CARE

Republican lawmakers struggling to overcome differences over new healthcare legislation faced a tough choice after Trump delivered an ultimatum: pass the bill on Friday or keep Obamacare in place.

Staunch opposition from the conservative Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives, as well as moderate Republicans, has put Trump’s art-of-the-bar skills to the test.

PIPELINE

Trump will make an announcement about TransCanada Corp’s Keystone XL pipeline on Friday morning, after the company said the State Department had issued a presidential permit for the construction of the line linking the Canadian oil sands with US refineries. .
