Trump again lied
During a press conference, Donald Trump described his achievement as a health care program passed in the Obama administration. When a journalist present at the press conference tried to trump this lie, he left the press conference without giving any answer.
During a press conference at the Golf Club in New Jersey, Trump claimed that he had passed the retired workers ‘health care program (Veterans’ Choice Program). He said that people wanted to pass it for decades and no President was able to pass it. We did it. To this, CBS News reporter Paula Red asked, ‘Why do you constantly say that you passed the Veterans’ Choice Program? It was passed only in 2014. This is a false statement. After this, Trump stopped and said, ‘Ok, thank you very much.’ After that he left the press conference and left.
The program passed in 2014
The truth is that former President Barack Obama signed the program in 2014. Under this, retired workers can get treatment in any private hospital and the government will bear the expenses. They do not need to go to the government-listed hospital. Under this program, there was a big announcement for retired personnel and they were allowed to get treatment in any private hospital at government expense. At the same time, when Donald Trump became the 45th President of the US, he expanded the program in 2018. After this, wherever Trump goes, he describes this program as an achievement of his government.
