It's no secret that #Donald Trump hasn't seen eye to eye [VIDEO]with certain members of his own Republican Party. As his attempt to repeal and replace the #affordable care act continues to stall, the president has decided to hit back at the Senator Majority Leader in his most recent rant on social media.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for president [VIDEO] just over two years ago, he followed in familiar footsteps of other Republican candidates. Bashing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, became an unwritten requirement for any conservative running for office, and Trump played the role as well as anyone.

Despite promising to repeal and replace Obamacare upon his inauguration, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been unable to live up to his word. Earlier this year, Trump and House Republicans, led by Speaker Paul Ryan, struggled to even get a vote on the floor due to backlash within their own party. However, cooler heads prevailed and the bill passed the House and moved onto the Senate where it currently sits in limbo. #Mitch McConnell has since spoken out against Trump who has been vocal in getting the bill to his desk, saying the president has "excessive expectations" about the time frame it takes to get the job done. In response, Trump found himself speaking out during a August 9 tweet.

In yet another tweet on Wednesday afternoon, Donald Trump turned his attention from his recent threats of potential nuclear action against North Korea to an in-house issue dealing with the future of Obamacare and the Republican Party.

"Senator Mitch McConnell said I had 'excessive expectations,' but I don't think so," Trump tweeted out. "After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?" he rhetorically asked, highlighting the Republican failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act since it became law in January 2010. While Obamacare hangs in the balance, the American people can only sit and wonder what will happen in regards to health care in the future.

Moving forward

As Donald Trump and other high-ranking members of the Republican Party continue to bicker over how they are handling the potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the American people don't seem too pleased with how the commander in chief is handling himself in the White House. In the most recent round of polls that were released earlier this week, Trump's approval rating has dropped down to just 35 percent, a near record low for a president in office for just six months.
