The GOP's ObamaCare replacement plan will let people purchase health insurance across state lines, President Trump said Tuesday.

"Don't worry, getting rid of state lines, which will promote competition, will be in phase 2 & 3 of healthcare rollout. @foxandfriends," Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president added that he was working on a plan to drive down drug prices by increasing competition between pharmaceutical companies. 

"I am working on a new system where there will be competition in the Drug Industry. Pricing for the American people will come way down!" he tweeted.

It also allows individuals to remain on their parents' health insurance plan until age 26.
