Trump says he will roll out new health care plan in next couple of months
President Trump said he’ll be rolling out a new health care plan in a couple of months, saying it will be a key focus in his 2020 reelection campaign.
“We’re going to produce phenomenal health care, and we already have the concept of the plan,” Trump told ABC News in an interview aired Sunday night.
“We’ll be announcing that in two months, maybe less,” he added, when prompted for specifics.
Trump said “we almost had health care done,” adding that ObamaCare “is a disaster,” but “we’ve made it serviceable.”
Health care was also a primary focus of Trump’s first presidential campaign, claiming that during his presidency he would repeal and replace ObamaCare with a plan that would insure all Americans.
During his time in office, Trump and Republican lawmakers have attempted to repeal portions of ObamaCare, despite recent elections signaling public support for the program.
The Trump administration even took legal action to try and overturn the Affordable Care Act through a lawsuit filed by the Justice Department claiming the bill is unconstitutional.
Whichever candidate Trump faces in 2020 will likely make health care a key debate point in the race. The Democratic presidential candidates support a range of universal health care proposals.
