LSIPR 50 2018: Donald Trump

Name: Donald Trump

Organisation: US Government

Position: President

US President Donald Trump has certainly not shied away from the public eye since taking on the mantle of ‘Leader of the Free World’, but it’s his aggressive stance on the Affordable Care Act implemented by his predecessor that secured his place on our list.

Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump pledged to repeal and replace Obamacare, which was created by former US President Barack Obama to extend healthcare to the estimated 15% of the country who don’t have coverage.
Obamacare has proved unpopular among the Republican party, with many claiming that it is too expensive.

In October 2017, Trump took the first steps in dismantling the healthcare act by signing an executive order in a move that, he claimed, would bring affordable health insurance to millions more people.

Under the order, Trump’s administration has been tasked with developing policies that will increase healthcare competition in order to improve the quality of healthcare and lower prices.
