Trump Reverses Stand; Pledges To Sustain Obama’s HealthCare PolicyLatest News, U.S./Canada, World News Saturday, November 12th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Unlike his pronounced opposition to some of his policies during the campaign, US President-elect Mr. Donald Trump has begun to reverse himself, as he pledged he will leave key parts of his predecessor, President Barack Obama’s healthcare bill, when get to the office.
Mr. Trump who during campaign vowed to repeal the 2010 law, said he would sustain the ban on insurers denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.
The change of mind by Trump on his calls for an all-out replacement of the Affordable Care Act, the incoming President stated, happened during his meeting with Mr. Obama on Thursday at the White House.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Republican hinted that he favoured allowing young adults to be insured on their parents’ policies.
“I like those very much,” Mr. Trump noted on the pending bills.
On possible probe of his rival, Mrs. Hilary Clinton on the alleged criminal email use, Trump replied: “It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve healthcare, jobs, border control, tax reform.”
Despite the olive branch from the key stakeholders, protesters who were aggrieved by Trump’s election still gathered Friday, in several US cities for a third night.
The anti-Trump protest touched Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon streets, with the participants, speaking against president-elect’s comments on immigrants, Muslims and women.
