CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) —  More than three-and-a-half years into his presidency and 40 days from an election, President Donald Trump is launching what aides term a “vision” for health care heavy on unfulfilled aspirations.

Trump spoke Thursday at an airport hangar in swing-state North Carolina to a crowd that included white-coated, mask-wearing health care workers.

He signed an executive order covering a range of issues, including protecting people with preexisting medical conditions from insurance discrimination. But that right is already guaranteed in the Obama-era health law his administration is asking the Supreme Court to overturn.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s order “bogus.”
