Trump doesn't rule out 'amended' Obamacare: WSJ

November 11, 2016

US President-elect Donald Trump has said he will consider an "amended" version of Barack Obama's signature health care law—a sign of a shift in position after repeatedly vowing on the campaign trail that he would repeal the measure.

Trump explained in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Friday that his shift came after White House talks on Thursday with President Barack Obama, who asked him to consider preserving parts of the health care law.

"Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced," Trump told the newspaper.

"I told him I will look at his suggestions, and out of respect, I will do that."
