President Donald Trump on Thursday took to Twitter to call on Americans to “keep your health care!”
The president was responding to a reporter’s question about the health of his family and the president’s comments in a White House meeting with lawmakers Thursday about whether to sign a new budget.
“The Affordable Care Act is a great program that has been a great success for millions of Americans, but it is failing miserably for the wealthy and big corporations,” Trump said.
“I am not happy with the way it is being run.
Trump is expected to announce his budget on Thursday. “
As a matter of fact, I have already told you I am prepared to sign whatever budget is put forward, and I would like to get a lot better at that.”
Trump is expected to announce his budget on Thursday.
But he is likely to rely on the support of the House and Senate Republicans to pass it, as his administration has been plagued by budget problems.
Trump said in a tweet that he was considering whether to issue an executive order to speed up the process of revamping the Affordable Care of 2020.
“This is something that will not happen overnight,” he said.
He added that he has instructed Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta to look at ways to speed the process up.
“We are going to get it done in a very short amount of time,” he told reporters Thursday.
Trump has repeatedly criticized the Affordable Health Care Act, which has been beset by problems for months, as a disaster that is killing millions of people.
He called the law the “worst job ever,” and said that millions of American jobs will be lost in the next two years as insurers withdraw from the market.
