Trump Vows Executive Order Providing Medical Care to Babies Born Alive

The Cuban American expatriate community in south Florida is a crucial constituency for Republicans in U.S. presidential elections.

Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden leads President Trump by 12 points with Catholics, according to an EWTN News/RealClear Opinion Research poll published Monday. "The cards will be mailed out in coming weeks".

New Reuters/Ipsos polls show the presidential race in the two states to be a dead heat, with each candidate drawing 47% of likely voters in both cases.

Trump also "promised millions of older Americans would receive $200 toward the cost of prescription drugs and signed executive orders he said would somehow prevent unexpected medical bills", the Post reports.

Trump made the announcement at the White House as he considers choosing a Cuban American woman from Florida to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Today, we reaffirm our ironclad solidarity with the Cuban people, and our eternal conviction that freedom will prevail over the sinister forces of communism, " he said.

'We've really become the healthcare party, the Republican Party, ' Trump countered Thursday. "If President Trump cared at all about people with pre-existing conditions, he would drop his lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act in the middle of a pandemic".

Trump will sign an executive order aimed at ensuring Americans with pre-existing conditions retain healthcare coverage, Azar said on Thursday, even as his own administration seeks to strike down the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, which protects the same right. He famously sat for the "60 Minutes" cameras just days after the 2016 election and said, "this is what I do I do a good job I mean I know how to do this stuff".

President Donald Trump headed to the battleground states of North Carolina and Florida on Thursday amid outrage over his refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power following the November 3 US election and two days before he will announce his pick to fill a Supreme Court vacancy.

Surprise bills occur when patients visit a hospital they believe is in their health insurance network but then are seen by a doctor or specialist who is out of network. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar told reporters earlier in the day that the orders would make it the "policy of the United States" that individuals will not be denied insurance coverage on the basis of preexisting conditions, and calls on Congress to produce legislation to that effect.
