President Obama appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos to discuss the future of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
According to Obama himself, he believes the controversial healthcare law will survive President-elect Donald Trump’s presidency.
When Stephanopoulos asked about the ACA’s chances of withstanding and surviving the Trump administration, Obama stated:
“I think it will [survive]. It may be called something else. As I said, I don’t mind. In fact, if the Republicans make some modifications, some of which I may have been seeking previously, but they wouldn’t cooperate because they didn’t want to make the system work, and re-label it as Trumpcare, I’m fine with that.”
