President Donald Trump’s administration is “dying” to address the issue of students’ contraception access, an adviser to the president said Tuesday, saying he believes “they are already suffering from lack of access to contraceptive coverage.”
“They are already struggling with lack of coverage.
They are already losing money,” Michael Short, senior adviser to President Donald J. Trump for Healthcare, said during a panel discussion at Harvard University.
Short is one of two advisers who has been in contact with Trump administration officials since the president signed the federal health care law in 2010.
In an email, Short wrote that he and other administration officials are “very concerned about the issue and have been talking to both our private and public counterparts for a long time.
The bottom line is we are not confident that the federal government will be able to solve the problem in a timely manner.”
The White House did not immediately respond to Axios’ request for comment.
