Donald Trump not only has no understanding of Obamacare, he appears to not understand how his employees get health insurance.

Trump’s employees are having a “tremendous problem” with health plans they don’t actually have. Trump himself doesn’t make much use of a health plan that he also doesn’t have. And all of this is a “disaster” for the American people.


Confused? Don’t worry. So is Mr. Trump.

At an event at one of his Florida properties on Tuesday, Trump claimed that “all of my employees are having a tremendous problem with Obamacare.” He also implied that these employees are facing massive premium hikes due to the Affordable Care Act.

Trump also went on Fox News to discuss his own experience with the president’s signature health law. “I don’t use much Obamacare,” Trump claimed, “because it is so bad for the people and they can’t afford it.”

Both of these statements suggest that Trump does not understand very basic things about America’s health system — or even how his own companies are run. Neither the overwhelming majority of the employees Trump referred to nor Trump himself receives health insurance through a program created by Obamacare.
