(and Biden)

A free searchable database containing over 35,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, in timeline form with context, created in May 2017. We began adding quotes from Joe Biden soon after he became the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee on June 5, 2020. Therefore, searches on most topics will return more Trump than Biden quotes, but we are continuing to add quotes from both 2020 presidential election candidates through the November 3, 2020 election.

GOP/HEALTHCARE/OBAMACARE(ACA)/PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: [Journalist: “Your administration is backing a lawsuit to invalidate the Affordable Care Act. So, given that people are losing their jobs now and need healthcare more than ever, would you consider rethinking your position on that?”] “Well, that’s a lawsuit coming out of Texas… And what we want to do is get rid of the bad healthcare and put in a great healthcare. And we will always — I will say this, I can make this commitment to you: The Republican Party is fully backing preexisting conditions. Now if we could get a great healthcare plan, which would need the House to do — but if we can get a great healthcare plan, we will only do it if we have preexisting conditions totally backed.

So, we’re backing preexisting, but we’d like to get rid of bad healthcare. Now, we are running the bad healthcare much better than it was ever run and we’re making it better, but it could be much better than it is. And so what we want to do is terminate it, have a great healthcare, but we will only do it with preexisting.

We will back preexisting conditions.”
