DONALD WHO?:

White House Health Care Full-Court Press Changes Few Minds (John T. Bennett, 3/22/17, Roll Call)

The president warned House Republicans they could face tough primary challenges and the party could lose both chambers if the health care bill dies. Trump also warned them that killing the measure would virtually derail his plans to pursue a tax overhaul package -- with massive cuts popular with Republican members and voters alike -- later this year.

However, hours later, as Republican House members scurried about during a vote series and senators left a lunch meeting with Pence, they spoke not of the power of the presidential pressure campaign, but about their lingering concerns about a list of policy provisions still in the bill. 

He ran behind all of them in their districts.  He owes them, not vice versa.
