U.S. President Donald Trump sat down for an exclusive interview with WIBC host Tony Katz Tuesday. The President and Tony discussed tax reform, frustration with the GOP's failure to make significant progress on healthcare, and ongoing efforts to negotiate and find areas of compromise with partisan Democrats.

President Trump:

We're going to see what happens [but] we're not going to have any Democratic support. We may have a few for the tax cut but not for the budget.

We're focused on the budget first; we think that will take place very shortly. We have the votes for the budget, we have the get the budget before we get the tax cuts. We hope that John McCain will be on board; we believe that Rand Paul is on board. [Rand] is a guy that I like, I've always liked him. But we need every vote. 

...[But] we had a real 'win' on healthcare, and then as you know, John [McCain] amazingly voted against it.

The President made a particular point of hammering Democrats for obstructing his agenda.

We have judicial appointments that are taking forever. And they know they're going to get approved, but it takes too much time. So the Democrats are obstructing government, and that's what they do best. Their policy is terrible, they're not good politicians, but they obstruct.
