LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – President Donald Trump was greeted by thousands of supporters during a campaign-style rally in Kentucky as he seeks to rally support for a Republican health care proposal.

It was the Trump administration’s second Kentucky visit in a little over a week, following Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to Louisville on March 11.

Wayne White is one of more than a million Kentuckians whose health care is covered by Medicaid. Yet the 28-year-old retail worker said he’s fine if Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something that could limit his options, saying he trusts Trump to take care of him.

Joe Anderson of Lexington called the Republican plan reckless, saying the current law helped his mother find insurance for her pre-existing heart condition.
