President Donald Trump said he doesn’t want any of his businesses to be forced to close due to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act, a decision he praised on Tuesday.
Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo that he believes businesses will be able to stay open and operate normally after the ruling, despite the uncertainty.
“Well, I think it’s very important that we get it right,” he said of the Affordable Health Care Act.
“I don’t know what the outcome is.
I don, you know, I don�t know what’s going to happen.
We will see.”
But Trump said if the Supreme Supreme Court rules in favor of the challengers, “we will have to go out and reopen all the businesses.
I think we will have some.”
Trump, however, said he wants to keep the government open.
“I’m not going to be closing down the government, and I donít think it would be a good thing,” Trump said.
“And I don´t think the people who are opposed to that would be happy about that.”
Trump also said he is not “going to be a party to any shutdown,” but he has a “great deal of respect for the Constitution” and believes the country is stronger when “the government is open.”
The president also said “there will be a shutdown in October, I promise you that,” according to The New York Times.
“But we are going to get it resolved, and we are gonna get it done.”
Trump’s comments come after Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., said Tuesday he received a text message from an intermediary in Russia offering information on the Clinton Foundation, but that he had no idea that the meeting was part of a Russian government effort to support Trump.
Trump Jr. has been one of the Trump administration’s most prominent defenders of the president, appearing in front of the cameras on several occasions, including in an appearance on The View in March when he defended the president and his administration.
But in an interview with the New York Daily News in March, Trump Jr. also admitted that he and his father knew of Russian attempts to buy votes.
“That’s a fact,” Trump Jr..
told the Daily News.
“If you read the emails, it was part and parcel of the Russian effort to help Mr. Trump win the election.
And so I was very happy when I read that.”
But the president said Tuesday that the president did not read the email at the time, and that he “doesn’t know the substance” of the text.
“He didn’t read it,” Trump told Fox News.
“[But] you can understand if the president was reading it, he wouldn’t have understood what was said.”
The court issued its ruling on Monday, and the administration has been preparing to appeal.
