President Trump said in an interview with ABC News aired on Saturday night, June 15, that he will be rolling out a new health care plan and it will be his key focus for his 2020 presidential re-election campaign.
“We’re going to produce phenomenal health care, and we already have the concept of the plan,” he said.
“We’ll be announcing that in two months, maybe less,” he added.
Health care is one of President Trump’s 2016 election promises. Since taking office, he has attempted to repeal “Obamacare,” or the Affordable Care Act, which he has repeatedly said is disastrous.
In 2017, President Trump and Republicans lawmakers failed to replace ObamaCare with American Healthcare Act, a plan that would ensure all Americans. However, despite his efforts, the bill was pulled because it did not have enough votes from Republicans.
Speaking with the ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, President Trump said, “If we win back the House, we’re going to produce phenomenal health care. And we already have the concept of the plan, but it’ll be less expensive than “Obamacare” by a lot.”
Health care will be the primary topic for 2020 presidential election debate. President Trump once criticized Democrats candidate, Bernie Sanders’s “socialist” health care plan that would probably eliminate private health insurance, saying, “Socialist health care would crush American workers with higher taxes, long wait times, and far worse care.”
