As Donald Trump’s poll numbers continue to plummet, former President Barack Obama took a shot at him while touting the popularity of his signature healthcare law at a private event Thursday. Obama, who has remained silent over Trump’s attacks on him, pointed out that Obamacare is now more popular than the current occupant of the White House who is trying to repeal it. For sure, Trump is going to call his low approval numbers ‘fake news.’ Trump failed to garner support from his own base to pass that shit sandwich Republicans offered in order to replace Obamacare.
As Republicans in Washington sputtered again this week in their efforts to undo the law, Obama noted to an audience in midtown Manhattan that “the Affordable Care Act has never been more popular — and it’s more popular than the current president,” according to a person in the room who paraphrased the comments.
Trump’s approval rating is the worst in recorded history for a new president. In contrast, approval for Obamacare has reached an all-time high while Republicans try to eradicate it.
Obama also predicted Thursday that it will be challenging for Trump and fellow Republicans to make any sweeping changes to a law that now provides health insurance for so many people, as he remarked how difficult it was for him to get Obamacare enacted into law in 2009.
Wait, is Obama saying that presidenting isn’t easy? It just dawned on Trump how difficult it is to be the leader of the Free World.
Publicly, Republicans have bashed the law, but according to the person who was present in the room, they are now facing the fact that many of their most vulnerable constituents have benefited from it. We’re not sure what took them so long to grasp that. Constituents have been flooding town hall meetings in fear of losing their coverage.
Trump has a 44% approval rating heading into his 100th day in office, according to a new CNN/ORC poll this week — the lowest approval rating of any newly elected president at this stage. In that survey, 36% said they approve of the way Trump is handling health care policy, and 47% said they favored Obamacare.
The event which featured Obama was off-the-record. When publicly speaking, Obama has remained silent just as his predecessors do about current presidents. However, Trump has viciously attacked the popular former President going as far as to say that he wiretapped his phones during the campaign. Trump said that while offering no evidence, a claim which even most Republicans could not defend.
