It's Paul Ryan's healthcare plan. Trump is just supporting it because he knows it will fail and lead to the end of Paul Ryan's reign... if Trump doesn't support it, then he will get blamed for Paul Ryan getting hosed. So he has to support it to keep in good favor so he doesn't get blamed for destroying the Republican Party. This way he can keep it together, because there is more of a semblance of unity, and the failure can be blamed squarely on Paul Ryan rather than being blamed on dis-unity in the party. In fact, a good argument could be made that if Trump didn't support it, Paul Ryan would still keep his job.
It may even be much more complex than that, but it could be as simple as that. The point is Trump doesn't make one dimensional moves. You guys can talk shit on the chess analogy all day long, but Trump won the Presidency with it and that ain't bad.
