President Donald Trump made a surprising announcement regarding one of his campaign promises that left his supporters disheartened and angry.

During his presidential campaign, Trump made several important promises including the one that he would replace Obamacare “immediately” after taking office with “great health care for a fraction of the price.”

“Obamacare is going to be repealed and replaced. We’re going to have a strong country again and Obamacare has to go,” Trump said in February of 2016. “We can’t afford it, it’s no good. You’re going to end up with great health care for a fraction of the price and that’s gonna take place immediately after we go in. Okay? Immediately. Fast. Quick.”

However, during the interview with Bill O’Reilly’s on Super Bowl Sunday the President stunned supporters when he said he may not replace Obamacare until 2018.

“Can Americans in 2017 expect a new health care plan rolled out by the Trump administration, this year?” O’Reilly asked Trump.

“In the process, and maybe it’ll take until some time into next year, but we are certainly gonna be in the process,” Trump replied. “Very complicated. Obamacare is a disaster. You have to remember, Obamacare doesn’t work. You look at Arizona, 116% increase, you look at Minnesota, all of these places, it’s gone through the roof. It doesn’t work — if I did nothing —”

“When are you going to have something ready?” O’Reilly pressed.

Trump responded:

“In fact the best thing politically to do is nothing for two years, let it explode, and then say now we’re gonna come in and save you. Then the Democrats, Schumer and everybody would be begging for help. But it’s not fair to the people. I think we have to go sooner. So we are putting in a wonderful plan. It statutorily takes a while to get. In other words, statute, you have to wait, have to wait 30 days, 90 days. We’re gonna be putting it in fairly soon. I think that, yes, I would like to say, by the end of the year, at least the rudiments, but we should have something within the year and the following year. And by the way, we will have something that’s good, less expensive, and really great health care.”

Trump’s fans immediately took to Twitter to express their disappointment because of the promises being ‘prolonged’. On Wednesday, conservative personality Matt Drudge accused the Trump administration of stalling when it comes to Obamacare, reports Truth Monitor.

During the press briefing today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer denied the accusations and explained that Obamacare is a “mammoth thing to repeal and replace” and that Trump’s goal “is to get it done right.”
