President Donald Trump released an unedited version of the “60 Minutes” interview he ultimately walked out on, and in it is a discussion about the Affordable Care Act.

“I hope that they end it. It’ll be so good,” Trump tells CBS News’ Lesley Stahl, despite America being in the middle of a deadly pandemic and now facing a third coronavirus wave.

“We’ll come up with a plan,” Trump says, admitting the plan he has claimed at various times over the years is ready, isn’t ready.

“We have large sections of it already done,” Trump claims. “And we’ve already come up with, let’s take a look at your various secretaries various plans that we’ve already come up with, and also.”

Trump and the Republicans for years have been trying to kill ObamaCare, and the only chance they have now, after failing 70 times in Congress, is through the courts.

On Wednesday Columbia University released a study finding up to 210,000 Americans died from the coronavirus and blamed Trump directly for the “avoidable” deaths.
