President Donald Trump lays out vision for America First Healthcare Plan during Charlotte, NC campaign rally

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — During a Charlotte, N.C. campaign rally on Thursday, President Donald Trump announced an executive order on preexisting medical conditions, amid a global pandemic and growing uncertainty about the future of protections guaranteed by the Obama-era health law his administration is still trying to overturn.

“Under the America First Healthcare Plan, we will ensure the highest standard of care anywhere in the world, cutting edge treatment, state-of-the-art medicine and ground-breaking cures and true health security for you and your loved ones,” Trump said. “We will do it rapidly, and it’s in very good order and some of it has already been implemented.”

The president sketched out what aides called a “vision” for quality health care at affordable prices, with lower prescription drug costs, more consumer choice and greater transparency. Aside from protecting people with preexisting conditions, he also said he plans to try to end surprise medical bills.

“The days of ripping off American patients are over,” he said.
