    US President Donald Trump has made a rare visit to Congress to ask Republicans to support a replacement healthcare plan.

    The bill takes apart ex-President Barack Obama's signature affordable healthcare act, known as Obamacare.

    In Kentucky, the number of uninsured has been cut in half under the programme, but it is also a state that voted overwhelmingly for Trump.
