At a White House news conference with the prime minister of Greece on Tuesday, President Trump was asked a very basic question regarding his health care plan. Yet, Trump completely screwed it up.
Fox News’ John Roberts asked probably the easiest question you could think of:
“I’m wondering, at this point, what is your health care plan, sir?”
Trump went off a very long, embarrassing word salad, and amazingly, didn’t even answer the question. Instead, he thought it was more important to attack former President Obama and the Affordable Care Act.
“Obamacare is a disaster. It’s virtually dead, as far as I am concerned it really is dead, and I predicted that a long time ago — it is a concept that doesn’t work, and we are very close,” Trump said. “We feel we have the votes, and as soon as we’re finished with taxes, John, we really feel we have the votes to get block grants into the states where the states can much better manage this money and much better take care of the people, rather than the federal government. The state block grants — we’ll do massive block grants into the various states so that the states can run the program.”
What’s worse, we still don’t know entirely what’s in Trump’s plan. An estimated 32 million people are expected to lose coverage if it passes.
