On Friday, Donald Trump suffered one of the most humiliating losses of his 9-week-old presidency — the death of the American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare. This came after numerous promises to ‘repeal and replace’ the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare), and after telling the American people he’d improve health insurance – even though his disastrous replacement was nothing but a disaster. In fact, it never even gained enough support to be voted for on Friday, and Trump pulled the bill from the House floor.
We all know how bitter Trump is about losing, and now he’s trying to cover up the fact that Obamacare has won. He is now trying to convince everyone that he never said he would “repeal and replace” Obamacare — obviously choosing to ignore the numerous videos and tweets in existence that show those words coming out of his big orange mouth. Fortunately, Slate compiled an amazing list of all the times Trump made those repeal and replace statements — just in case poor Donnie forgot.
For example, here’s a statement Trump made at the Iowa Freedom Summit in January 2015:
Somebody has to repeal and replace Obamacare. And they have to do it fast and not just talk about it.”
And about a year later, he said this:
Here’s another statement Trump made in February 2016, making a clear campaign promise that he was too incompetent to deliver:
Obamacare is going to be repealed and replaced. … You’re going to end up with great health care for a fraction of the price and that’s gonna take place immediately after we go in. Okay? Immediately. Fast. Quick.”
Trump was even making these statements as recently as January of this year. On January 11th, Trump said of Obamacare:
It will be repeal and replace. It will be essentially simultaneously. It will be various segments, you understand, but will most likely be on the same day or the same week, but probably the same day. Could be the same hour.”
If you ever needed the proof that Trump is a pathological liar, this is it. You can watch him lie his ass off in the video below:
