U.S President Donald Trump has said that Obamacare was a ‘disaster’ and it’s ‘failing miserably’, as he plans to replace the affordable healthcare of his predecessor on account of significant increase in its insurance premium.
“Obamacare is a disaster. It’s failing”, Trump told reporters at a joint news conference with the visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Obamacare will fail. It will fold. It will close up very, very soon if something isn’t done,” he said.
One of his major electoral promise, Trump has initiated steps to replace and repeal the signature healthcare initiative of his predecessor Barack Obama.
“It’s all coming together. We’re going to have great healthcare”, Trump said.
An alternative healthcare plan has been tabled in the U.S Congress, which he exuded confidence would be passed.
“It’s going to be passed, I believe, I think substantially, pretty quickly. It’s coming together beautifully. You have conservative groups, you have other groups. Everybody wants certain things. In the end, we’re going to have a great healthcare plan”, he said.
