Obamacare is a law that's not only affecting people adversely, but is expensive as well, Trump maintained. In addition, the website problems are causing people to not know if they have healthcare coverage after they have enrolled, he said.

Ezekiel Emmanuel, one of Obamacare's architects, proposed a public relations campaign to promote the program in an appearance on "Fox News Sunday." Trump disagreed with Emmanuel's claim that promoting Obamacare would encourage young people to sign up for it.
