A month after a bill passed in Congress that would have made it easier for small business owners to get subsidized health insurance coverage, the president has not said whether he will sign it.
The president’s refusal to sign the legislation is a significant departure from his predecessor, Barack Obama, who signed it into law and then signed it again on his watch.
On Thursday, Trump tweeted that he did not think it would be possible to “get the Democrats (the insurance industry) to agree to a new bill that gives more subsidies for insurance to small businesses and individuals, or that it’s a big deal.”
In the two weeks since then, Trump has not publicly indicated whether he plans to sign it, and his administration has said that it is not working on it.
Trump’s position on the bill has become more pronounced as the president’s health policy has become a priority for his administration.
His recent announcement that he is not going to sign legislation that would allow insurers to charge older Americans more for their coverage has put pressure on insurers to reconsider their plans.
The health care law has also become a hot topic in the campaign, with Trump repeatedly attacking the insurance industry and attacking the Affordable Care Act in general.
On Friday, he appeared to hint at a possible decision on the health care bill, saying, “The big one is health care.”
On Thursday afternoon, the administration did not comment on whether the president plans to take action on the Affordable Health Care Act, a major priority for the president and the president-elect.
In the days since the bill passed, the White House has issued several tweets attacking the legislation.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the Trump administration said it was “working on” a healthcare plan, but did not say when or what it might look like.
The White House also did not immediately respond to a question about whether it would take action before the bill is signed into law.
Trump has previously criticized the Affordable Healthcare Act and has said he would “probably kill it” if he had the opportunity.
“If you look at the premiums that are going up, the deductibles that are increasing, the copays that are increased, that are a disaster, I don’t want to see it,” Trump said in September.
“The Democrats are so bad, so bad.”
The president-in-waiting has also taken a dim view of the law and its implementation, even as he has supported its implementation.
Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he would probably kill it.
“Obamacare is a disaster,” Trump wrote.
“And we have to replace it with something, but it’s too late.
It’s going to cost a fortune and that’s just the way it is.”
“ObamaCare is the worst, most disastrous piece of legislation ever signed into laws in America,” Trump tweeted last month.
“Not one single Republican voted for it.
It was the worst and most terrible piece of law ever passed into law in America.
It is now law, and you cannot repeal it.
