Washington, DC — Today, President Trump released footage from a “60 Minutes” interview with Lesley Stahl, which he abruptly walked out of this past weekend. It’s clear why he jumped ship. When asked about a health care plan and his lawsuit to destroy the Affordable Care Act in court, the president reaffirmed that he wants the Supreme Court to strike down the law. In response to the newly-released footage, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach released the following statement:

“Once again, Donald Trump showed us that his only health care plan is his lawsuit, which would take away Americans’ health care in the middle of an ever-worsening pandemic, one week after Election Day. If successful, Trump’s lawsuit would rip health care from over 20 million Americans and end protections for 135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. Trump’s disastrous interview shows he and the GOP have never had any other plan than to completely destroy the ACA and throw the entire American health care system into chaos.”
