Trump: ‘The Press Is Making ObamaCare Look So Good All of a Sudden’

‘Things are going to be very bad this year for the people with ObamaCare’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "I have to state this just in closing, I then want to hear some of your stories. And we’ll let the press stay for your stories if you like. But the press is making ObamaCare look so good all of a sudden. I’m watching the news, look so good. They’re showing these reports about this one get so much, and this one get so much. First of all, it covers very few people. And it’s imploding. And ‘17 will be the worst year. And I said it once I'll say it again because Obama is gone. I think you know, that things are going to be very bad this year for the people with ObamaCare. They’re going to have tremendous increases. And the Republicans frankly are putting themselves in a very bad position -- I tell this to Tom Price all the time, by repealing ObamaCare. Because people aren’t going to see the truly devastating effects of ObamaCare. They’re not going to see the devastation in ‘17 and ‘18 and '19, it'll be gone by then. It'll -- whether we do it or not, it'll be imploded off the map. So the press is making it look so wonderful. So that if we end it, everyone's going to say, 'Oh, remember how great ObamaCare used to be. Remember how wonderful it used to be. It was so great.' It’s a little bit like President Obama; when he left, people liked him. When he was here people, didn’t like him so much. That’s the way life goes. That’s human nature. The fact is ObamaCare is a disaster."
