Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway got upset with reporters for asking about President Donald Trump‘s failure to meet a two-week deadline for announcing major health care news, a deadline that Trump himself imposed.
On June 14, during a Rose Garden rolling out new regulations on Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), Trump boasted that “we’re now working with Congress to pass legislation that ends surprise medical billing,” and then promised “we’re going to have another big announcement in two weeks, unrelated but something that’s going to have a profound effect on the things that we’re talking about and have been talking about over the last two and a half years.”
“It’s going to be something really incredible,” Trump said, and repeated “That’ll take place over the next two weeks. That’ll be a very big announcement. Nobody knows what it is. It’s going to be a big surprise, but it’s going to be a very pleasant one.”
