Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said noth­ing about health­care or the pend­ing re­peal of his pre­de­ces­sor’s sig­na­ture law, the Af­ford­able Care Act, in his in­au­gu­ral speech last week.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Dur­ing his ad­dress Fri­day, Trump touched on pol­icy is­sues of im­mi­gra­tion, in­fra­struc­ture, crime and for­eign re­la­tions as the change of power took place amidst protest marches else­where in Washington and through­out the coun­try. House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi and sev­eral oth­ers wore blue but­tons on their lapels that read #Pro­tec­tOurCare, a ref­er­ence to op­po­si­tion of the GOP ma­jor­ity’s prom­ise to re­peal the ACA. Shortly after Trump took of­fice, the of­fi­cial White House web­site re­moved in­for­ma­tion on health­care and cli­mate change. Trump has called cli­mate change “a hoax” de­spite sci­en­tific evidence of its ef­fects.
