Trump Pledges Four More Years of Lies and Chaos in Our Health Care

Washington DC —  Yesterday, in a desperate attempt to cover up his abysmal health care record, Donald Trump denied that he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — a direct contradiction of his own actions and words. In reality, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump sabotaged affordable health care and pre-existing condition protections while he was in office, and has renewed his calls to “terminate” the ACA at least seven times over the last several months. In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement: 

“Trump can’t run from his health care record. But Trump knows he is out of step with the American people, so he is doing what he knows best: lying to the American people. Trump’s first goal as president was to repeal the ACA, and even when he failed, he spent his presidency sabotaging it until the bitter end. Trump’s disastrous health care record includes tirelessly working to repeal the ACA, deliberately sabotaging affordable health care, botching the nation’s COVID response, and upending women’s health care by overturning Roe v. Wade. The consequences of another Trump presidency would be devastating for American families’ health and financial security.”
