President Donald Trump is “committed to the Affordable Care Act,” as he meets with House Republicans to discuss the legislation, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says.
Sanders says the president is not offering specifics but is working with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to “work together to address some of the key issues that need to be addressed” with Republicans and Democrats alike.
Sanders was asked about reports that Trump is considering making the House repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act his signature accomplishment in the health care process.
She said the president wants to “continue working to help make sure that we have the best possible healthcare plan in the country for the American people.”___AP reporter David Fahrenthold in New Orleans contributed to this report.
