President Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, gave us a heavy book that she described as the president’s health care plan. It was filled with executive orders and congressional initiatives, but no comprehensive healthcare plan.
The @60Minutes interview that President Trump cut short
“I wish you would interview Joe Biden like you interview me,” President Trump says to Lesley Stahl.
Asked whether his tweets or name-calling turn people off, President Trump says: “I think I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have social media.” Moments later, he abruptly ended the interview.
President Trump says COVID cases are rising because of more testing, but according to the COVID Tracking Project, that doesn’t account for all of the increase in new cases across the country, or the 40% increase in hospitalizations in the past month.
“It's going to be announced very soon,” President Trump says about a new health care plan. “We won't do anything and no plan unless we have preexisting conditions covered.”
Lesley Stahl: Are you ready for some tough questions? President Trump: You’re going to be fair? Lesley Stahl: . . . I’m going to be fair. President Trump: Just be fair.
“Gallup did a poll, 56% of the people said that they’re better off now, during a pandemic, than they were during Obama and Biden… it was a record number,” says President Trump.
