In the last four years, Donald Trump has never come up with a comprehensive plan as an alternative to Obamacare.

The Trump administration had proposed regulations that will make it easier to obtain coverage through short-term health insurance plans by allowing insurers to sell policies that last just under a year. The plan will be cheaper than Obamacare because they are allowed to exclude those with pre-existing conditions and base rates on an applicant's medical history, unlike plans sold on the Obamacare exchanges. However, no comprehensive plan has been put forth by the President so far. Therefore, the claim by former Vice President Joe Biden is true.

Ever since he was a presidential candidate, President Donald Trump has been promising the American people a “terrific,” “phenomenal” and “fantastic” new health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act or the Obamacare. But, in the 3½ years since he has come to power, he has yet to deliver.
