(RNN) – The House of Representatives won’t vote on a possible Obamacare replacement bill this week.

The postponed vote comes as President Donald Trump prepares to mark his 100th day in office Saturday.

A possible vote could come next week as the GOP tries to secure enough support to pass the bill.

A previous bill was pulled in March before Congress could vote on it, citing lack of support. 

"It was very close," Trump said at the time. 

The new bill has more support from the House Freedom Caucus, who declined to support the previous bill, but has faced some opposition from moderate Republicans.
