While discussing how he would repeal and replace Obamacare during Thursday’s GOP Town Hall in Columbia, Donald Trump criticized those who would say that “Republicans hate the concept of taking care of people.”

TRUMP: The new plan is good … but there’s going to be a group of people at the bottom, people that haven’t done well, that don’t have any money, that won’t be able to be taken care of. We’re going to take care of them through maybe concepts of Medicare. We have hospitals that aren’t doing well, doctors that aren’t doing well. You cannot let people die in the street. Now some people would say that’s not a very Republican thing to say. Every time I say this at a rally or even today I said it, once it got a standing ovation. I say everybody thinks that you people of Republicans hate the concept of taking care of people that are really, really sick and are going to die. That’s not called single payer, by the way. That’s called heart.
