The Washington Post reports:
It was a bold claim when President Trump said that he was about to produce an overhaul of the nation’s health-care system, at last doing away with the Affordable Care Act, which he has long promised to abolish.
“We’re signing a health-care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health-care plan,” Trump pledged in a July 19 interview with “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace. Now, with the two weeks expiring Sunday, there is no evidence that the administration has designed a replacement for the 2010 health-care law. Instead, there is a sense of familiarity.
Repeatedly and starting before he took office, Trump has vowed that he is on the cusp of delivering a full-fledged plan to reshape the health-care system along conservative lines and replace the central domestic achievement of Barack Obama’s presidency.
The president’s declining mental state continues. Two weeks ago he said he’d be releasing a health care plan today.
There’s no scheduled press conference, no release.
If Trump can’t even keep track of his Administration’s plans, how can we trust him with anything else? pic.twitter.com/JNtY2IVP1q

TRUMP: “We’re going to be doing a very inclusive health care plan. I’ll be signing it very soon. It might be Sunday, but it’s going to be very soon. We’re also doing a full immigration plan.”
