Please learn the President's role in creating laws and legislature.
The President does not have the power to change laws. Congress has to repeal the penalty for not having health insurance, not the President.

the ACA is still the law, Congress has not changed it and you can still be penalized if you don't have insurance

As of 6 days ago .. it was STILL a proposal...

"President Donald Trump is pressuring Republicans to repeal a health care law penalty in their tax rewrite, a step the House's top tax writer indicated is politically problematic."
"..... the president had spoken to him twice by phone and once in person, imploring him to scrap the so-called individual mandate that requires Americans to obtain health insurance or face a penalty."
So no,... still in place. - NOTHING has changed in 1 year...

As far as I know, he hasn't done squat. Any changes he makes will probably make it worse. That particular change, forget it. You don't have to pay it though. There's no penalty for not paying it. Unless you're getting a refund, they will deduct it from that.

The ACA ("Obamacare") is basically untouched, including a penalty for being uninsured.

Not yet. For now, if you don't get insurance in time, then you are still required to pay the penalty. However, this may change soon.

Good question - I thought I heard that he did, but maybe not - better find out before the deadline! Then again, isn't the penalty much lower than the cost of insurance? Like MUCH lower?

It matches the wish that the Republicans have for us: "Please go off into the corner and die a miserable death. Thank you very much for playing."
