In a preview clip of his 60 Minutes interview, President-Elect Donald Trump confirms his change of heart on Obamacare and described the concession phone call between him and Hillary Clinton. Trump told CBS’s Lesley Stahl that he will indeed be keeping parts of the controversial ACA act intact, as he hinted at in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. This includes the provision requiring insurance companies to accept people despite pre-existing conditions and another allowing children to stay on their parent’s insurance plans until the age of 26. He also reiterated that his replacement plan will be better and cheaper than Obama’s plan and hinted the law won’t be repealed until a replacement is found.
As for his phone call with Mrs. Clinton, the president-elect told Stahl that it was a “lovely” conversation and that he still respects Clinton.
