Trump Makes Major U-Turn On Obamacare And Prosecuting Hillary Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One of the things Trump and his supporters screamed about during the general election was about the nature of the media, and how biased they were. The way they spin things. We know this, we know they way they are shady and in the tank for Democrats, and will attempt to make Democrats look great and Republicans look bad. Now, they’re all pimping the notion that Trump has gone back on his pledge to repeal Obamacare. For instance

Donald Trump: I may not repeal Obamacare, President-elect says in major U-turn
Getting rid of the healthcare plan was among billionaire businessman’s biggest campaign promises

Donald Trump has said that he might not repeal Obamacare, perhaps his biggest campaign promise.

The President-elect performed the apparent U-turn after his meeting with Barack Obama at the White House this week, he has said.

Mr Trump is going to look at “amending” the Affordable Care Act, rather than completely repealing it, he told the Wall Street Journal.

“Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced,” Trump told the newspaper. “I told him I will look at his suggestions, and out of respect, I will do that.”

Oh, noes, doooooom! Really, though, this is just Trump being nice after a meeting with Obama. What Trump was specifically referring to are two provisions he favors: allowing kids to stay on their parents insurance up to 26 and insurers refusing to cover people with pre-existing conditions. At the end of the day, the GOP will push through legislation that will repeal and replace Obamacare, and Trump will sign it. There’s nothing wrong with keeping a few provisions, especially if there are things that the GOP preferred previously.

Then we have the prosecution of Hillary Clinton

Having called Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” and “crooked” during the campaign, Trump struck a conciliatory tone towards his former opponent in both interviews. The Wall Street Journal asked about campaign promises to appoint a special prosecutor to pursue criminal charges against his Democratic rival over her use of a private email server to conduct official business as secretary of state.

“It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve healthcare, jobs, border control, tax reform,” Trump said. The statement is likely to anger the president-elect’s core supporters, many of whom chanted: “Lock her up, lock her up,” at rallies during the campaign.

Nor should this be a priority. Fixing the problems in the nation, as he mentions, are. It would also look bad politically for him to go after Hillary after defeating her in a humiliating manner. She deserves to be prosecuted, and for the Clinton Foundation to be heavily investigated, but, it would be better if a President Trump stayed hands off. He doesn’t want to turn into That Politician. The best revenge on Hillary, Obama, and the Democrats will be to work hard to get things done.

But, sheesh, the guy hasn’t even taken office and the liberal media is already parsing everything he says and attempting to spin it in a negative manner.

    Give him until at least Spring of 2017when he has been in office a few months. Then we will know if he is for real or just another jive turkey like Obama. Obama made it very plain what he was in his first few months but the lemmings never got it because they watched a daily brainwashing by the criminal media.

      I saw what Obama was in July of 2007. I did not need to wait until that pos got into office to see his lying contentious character. But with Trump being new to the game of politics he does require more time to observe, read, and understand significant results of certain issues pro or con. Believe he will try to do the very best he is allowed to do. But realize the cabal will work hard against him and blame him for everything that is actually Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama creations of disasters.
