Trump: Obamacare is Like Obama – When He Left, People Liked Him. When He Was Here, Not So Much.

Discussing Obamacare at a roundtable, President Trump compared the country’s attitude toward President Obama’s signature health care law to the man himself on Monday, saying, “[Obamacare] is a little bit like President Obama. When he left, people like him. When he was here, people didn’t like him so much.”

“The press is making Obamacare look so good all of a sudden,” Trump said. “They’re showing these reports about ‘this one gets so much and this one gets so much.'”

Trump outlined the issues he saw with the 2010 health care law, describing how it would collapse in the next few years and covered “very few people.”

The White House held the roundtable to highlight those whom Obamacare has victimized with rising premiums and decreased access.
