The Health 202: Now Trump says he meant to keep Obamacare. Say what?
The Washington Post

President Trump has a new spin on why Obamacare’s still around: He decided to keep the law instead of “kill” it.

“I had a decision to make,” Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd yesterday. “I could have politically killed Obamacare. I decided not to do it. But still it’s not good. We’re going to come up with great health care if we win the House, the Senate and the presidency.”

That’s quite the claim from the president, who has privately and publicly castigated congressional Republicans and staff for failing to help him deliver on one of his biggest promises in 2016, to replace the Affordable Care Act.
