President-elect Donald Trump is open to keeping parts of President Obama's signature health care law, he said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal published Friday.
Trump told the paper, after speaking with Obama at the White House the day before, he was considering keeping the clause that allows children to stay on their parents' insurance policies.
The president-elect also told the Journal that he favors the prohibition on insurers denying coverage to patient with a pre-existing condition.
"I like those very much," Mr. Trump told the paper.
Trump has argued in the past that the pre-existing condition aspect of the law should not be repealed.
During the Republican primary debate that aired on CNN on Feb. 25, Trump said of the prohibition, "I think we need it. I think it's a modern age. And I think we have to have it."
Despite his acceptance of these two aspects of the law, Trump reiterated to the Journal that he will repeal and replace Obamacare when he takes office.
Trump told the paper he would move "quickly" in repealing the law.
