Administration officials faced questions at ABC News Town Hall the day after Trump said the vague health care plan he promised would be dating back to last year, “all ready.” But three administration health officials have testified that they were not involved in drafting the plan, and the mechanics would not specify who worked on the proposal.

Trump released the health care plan at several points during his presidency. He often talks vaguely of a comprehensive plan, but no such policy has arrived.
The president told “Fox News Sunday” in mid-July that he would sign a health care plan “within two weeks”. In August, he pushed forward the timeline within a month. Nevertheless, no plan has been revealed.
