Trump Mistakenly Says Obamacare Signed 17 Years Ago

C-SPAN

President Donald Trump committed a verbal blunder Monday when he mistakenly said the Affordable Care Act has been in effect for almost two decades.

"Thank you everyone for being here today," Trump said at the start of a White House speech on healthcare reform. "For the past 17 years, Obamacare has wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent, hardworking Americans."

Obamacare was signed into law seven years ago in 2010.

An ABC News editor posted a brief clip of the gaffe on Twitter:

Trump called on Republicans in the Senate to begin the process of repealing Obamacare in the face of stalled efforts to pass legislation that would repeal and replace it in one swipe of the pen.

"For Senate Republicans, this is their chance to keep their promise," Trump said. "There has been enough talk and no action. Now is the time for action."
