In a tweet, Trump said he would use the “power of the pen”–presumably referring to an executive order–to reform healthcare.
“Since Congress can’t get its act together on HealthCare, I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people – FAST,” Trump wrote.

It wasn’t immediately clear how, or what, exactly Trump would sign.
However, last month Trump said he would sign a “very major” executive order that would allow people to go across state lines to purchase healthcare.
The Senate tried several times to pass a version of a bill that would repeal former President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy but failed numerous times to secure the required number of votes. The lack of action has frustrated Trump, according to his Twitter feed.
