It's no secret that #Donald Trump and several high-ranking Republicans have not been on the same page [VIDEO] when it comes to a variety of issues. As the effort to repeal and replace the #affordable care act continues to stall, the president is placing blame on the GOP leader in the Senate.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump announced his campaign for president [VIDEO]back in June 2015, he quickly made eliminating the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, part of his platform. Following in the footsteps of the other Republican candidates, Trump's promise to repeal Obamacare included a quick replacement that he vowed to put in place following his inauguration if he was to win the election.

Fast forward a year and a half later and Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton before being sworn into office this past January. However, after over six months in office, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been unable to rally enough Republicans by his side in writing off Obamacare. After a struggle, a Trump-backed bill passed though the House, as it now sits in the Senate. Earlier this week, Senate Minority leader #Mitch McConnell said Trump has "excessive expectations" about Obamacare, prompting the president to hit back. On August 10, Trump took a break from his golf vacation to lash out at McConnell during his latest tweetstorm.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump went back to his attack on Mitch McConnell for daring to question him over his plan to repeal and replace Obamcare.

"Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!"

In a follow-up tweet, Donald Trump didn't hold back his attack on Mitch McConnell, pushing him to "get back to work," despite being on a 17-day vacation at his own private golf course in New Jersey. "Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing," Trump posted, while stating, "You can do it!"

Moving forward

The fight over the future of health care in the United States has become one of the most important and debated issues in the country. While Donald Trump, Republicans, and other conservatives push to repeal Obamacare, millions have been able to take advantage of health insurance that wasn't previously made available to them. Despite the bickering back and forth, only time will tell how it all plays out.
