President Donald Trump told a rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday that the “fake news media” has “been trying to make me look bad” by claiming the Affordable Care Act is a “rigged system” that was designed to “subvert and destroy the American Dream.”
“I will say this to the fake news media: We’re going to pay the Price for a rigged system,” Trump said.
“We’re going get rid of Obamacare.
We’re not going to let it take away our healthcare.”
Trump also repeated the assertion that the American Health Care Act was designed “to subvert and kill the American dream” by forcing people to buy into private insurance plans that they were told were more expensive.
“They have been trying to get this out of the American people for a long time.
And now they’re trying to do it in the most horrible and dishonest way,” Trump told supporters.
“They are so dishonest.
They have a rigged process.”
Trump said that a majority of Americans believe the ACA is a rigged “corrupt system” and that people should be allowed to choose their own plans.
“We’ll get rid in one or two years of the rigged system, but we’re not giving it away for free,” Trump added.
“And we’re going keep the insurance companies out.
They will be in charge of the system.
They are so corrupt.
They’ve been in charge all along.””
So, when we get rid the crooked system, they’ll all be back, and we’ll all pay, in one way or another, the price,” Trump continued.
“The prices are going to be much lower than they are now.”
Trump, who has said that he wants to make healthcare a right, has also repeatedly asserted that the Affordable Health Care Care Act will be repealed.
“The law will be the law of the land, but when you look at what is happening to it, it is a disaster.
It is a disgrace,” Trump has said.
