With the 2020 election months away, President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is touting his health care record as a key reason voters should grant him another term.

Those talking points were distilled in a Dec. 31 social media post from Team Trump, the campaign's official Twitter account, and again in a post on Monday from the president's account. It represents messaging the president will likely repeat, especially as polls consistently show health care is a top concern for voters.

The December tweet advanced five specific achievements:

"@DonaldTrump healthcare policy is working:

-- Healthcare access expanded & costs down

-- Obamacare individual mandate repealed


-- Record # of generic drugs approved

-- Access to affordable, short-term, limited duration & association plans

-- Pre-existing conditions covered"

Trump reiterated those claims Monday, arguing that he was "the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare," while "winning the fight to rid you of the ... Individual Mandate."
