ABC News

President Trump told ABC News last night that he wants to make sure "no one" loses coverage in the repeal and replacement of Obamacare — but he acknowledged he couldn't guarantee it. "Knowing ABC, you'll have this one person on television saying how they were hurt, OK?" Trump said in the interview. "We want no one. We want the answer to be no one."

"Here's what I can assure you: We are going to have a better plan, much better health care, much better service treatment, a plan where you can have access to the doctor that you want and the plan that you want," Trump said. "We're going to have a much better health care plan at much less money."

Remember the canceled plans? Trump brought them up to remind this audience that even Obamacare caused disruption — though he seemed to think the people whose old, pre-Obamacare plans were canceled in 2013 never got insurance again. "You have millions of people that now aren't insured anymore," Trump said. In reality, many of them got extensions of their old plans and others switched to new ones — and the uninsured rate is now down to a record low of 8.6 percent.

The pandemic real estate market

It's not just emotional buying, real estate agents say: There are smart and strategic reasons that Americans of all ages, races and incomes are moving away from urban centers.

Why it matters: Bidding wars, frantic plays for a big suburban house with a pool, buying a property sight unseen — they're all part of Americans' calculus that our lives and lifestyles have been permanently changed by coronavirus and that we'll need more space (indoors and out) for the long term.

Coronavirus cases are falling, but don't get too comfortable

America's coronavirus outbreak is slowing down after a summer of explosive growth.

By the numbers: The U.S. is averaging roughly 52,000 new cases per day — still a lot of cases, but about 10.5% fewer than it was averaging last week.

We're doing a lot less coronavirus testing

The U.S. is cutting back on coronavirus testing. Nationally, the number of tests performed each day is about 17% lower than it was at the end of July, and testing is also declining in hard-hit states.

Why it matters: This big reduction in testing has helped clear away delays that undermined the response to the pandemic. But doing fewer tests can also undermine the response to the pandemic.
