Trump talked about keeping those two provisions of Obamacare, if he can work it out, in his campaign speeches. So, I wasn't surprised to hear it.
There were things he said that caught my attention:
At his convention speech he said: "I understand the dignity of work." Wow! That was big!
When someone accused him of not understanding the ave. American because he was a billionaire, he agreed that he was wealthy and stated that he wanted to help everyone do well.
To the W. Virginia coal miners he said that renewables are not practical yet and that miners could be re-trained in renewables as they grew and be offered first dibs on those jobs (Clinton offered federal subsidies to families instead)
A black woman did a personal video from her car with her two boys in the back seat. She was excited and said she was on her way to vote. She said that because she was a woman and African American she was supposed to vote Democrat, but she was voting for Trump; she was not a slave and did not live on the Democrat Plantation; she cited a speech Micelle Obama gave on TV1? (a predominately black channel?) where viewers were told: It doesn't matter what they said, it doesn't matter what they've done, you need to get to the polls and vote straight Democrat." This woman said no one was going to tell her how to vote - that she was voting for jobs instead of the old rhetoric that has kept blacks down. She even said that white people were not the only ones who had slaves - that blacks were often given authority over slaves and helped keep them in line, suggesting that that was what the Obamas were trying to do.
Whatever else this election has done, it is finally at least different in terms of the power grid in Washington, I think. I wish Soros (MoveOn.org) would give up the rioting - but I suppose making 24 billion dollars as a Hedge Fund Manager (weren't they responsible for the '08 recession?) isn't enough for him. And I see that the NYT is vowing "to rededicate themselves to reporting honestly"!
I've known about Donald Trump my whole adult life (since I live in NY); he's often been in the tabloids, as you can imagine. I never heard of any rapes or unsolicited attention to women; offensive talk was plentiful and was always meted out fairly among all - an equal opportunity offender, you might say. But there are more stories than you can shake a stick at of his abundant generosity, willingness (eagerness) to learn and get feedback from his workers (and to use that information to improve the project), and generally to encourage everyone to do better. I don't think his idea is to do things for people, but to 'unleash their potential' - that is, to help them to do for themselves and to experience the pride and dignity that comes from building something for yourself.
His claim to bring every job in "ahead of schedule and under budget' has pretty much rung true - even in this election. I do think he values excellence and quality in work and in people, whoever they are. That he sticks right now with people he trusts as he navigates largely unchartered waters is not surprising to me. I'll wait and see in what directions he moves. It may be that he felt that the Democratic Party had left him.
PS My last DSM IV would hardly show Trump as a Psychopath or Sociopath; terms loosely thrown about, I think. If you'd ever worked with either group I don't think you'd use those terms to describe him. And one man's narcissism is another man's pride of accomplishment?
