Analysts are calling on President Donald Trump to release details of his new health care plan, but the president said Wednesday that it would take at least five years to implement and is still looking for “time.”
“We will see what happens.
I think we’ll see what’s happening.
I’m waiting for the information,” Trump said during an interview with The New York Times in which he outlined a detailed plan to replace Obamacare.
The White House had said previously that the administration would have a plan ready by mid-November.
But Trump said the process would be a lot slower than expected.
“It’s been a very long, complex process.
It’s been 10 years, I’ll tell you,” he said.
Trump is expected to unveil his plan later this week, and he has not provided any details about how he would implement it.
He also did not offer any details on how his plan would replace the Affordable Care Act.
We’re going to be very detailed,” Trump told The Times.
He noted that he would “absolutely” allow people to buy private insurance.
But he also said he would not allow the government to provide subsidies for people to purchase health insurance.
“There is no way to insure all of those people.
We’ll have to do that,” Trump promised.
In addition to health care, Trump is also expected to outline a new tax plan, which he said he had “no idea” how to do.
But during the interview, he did not provide any details.
