President Donald Trump faced tough questioning from a voter regarding his efforts to repeal Obamacare at an ABC News town hall on Tuesday night.
Ellesia Blaque, a PhD and professor who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, spoke about her lifelong struggle with sarcoidosis, an inflammatory disease, as well as the extent of her healthcare costs. She asked: “Should preexisting conditions, which Obamacare brought to fruition, be removed –”
“Please stop and let me finish my question, sir,” Blaque said. “Should that be removed, within a 36 to 72-hour period, without my medication, I will be dead. And I want to know what it is that you’re going to do assure that people like me who work hard, we do everything we’re supposed to do, can stay insured.”
“It’s not my fault that I was born with this disease,” she continued. “It’s not my fault that I’m a Black woman, and in the medical community I’m minimized and not taken seriously. I want to know what you are going to do about that.”
“So first of all, I hope you are taken seriously. I hope you are. And we are not going to hurt anything having to do with preexisting conditions,” Trump replied.
