Ever since he kicked off his campaign for president, Donald Trump has voiced his opposition to the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. With just three weeks left until he is sworn in as the new president, Trump is not backing down from his criticism of President Obama's signature health care law.

Trump on Obamacare

When Obamacare was officially made law back in 2011, it quickly became one of the most controversial topics in American politics. While President Obama and Democrats championed the change in how the United States runs its healthcare system, Republicans pushed back, accusing the new law of being a "socialist government takeover." Over 20 million more Americans now have access to health insurance because of the change, mostly due to the individual mandate.

Twenty-four hours after Donald Trump made harsh comments about the law, the president-elect was back on Twitter to voice his opposition on January 5.

"The Democrats, lead by head clown Chuck Schumer, know how bad ObamaCare is and what a mess they are in. Instead of working to fix it, they do the typical political thing and BLAME," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning. In a follow-up tweet, the billionaire real estate mogul didn't stop there, stating, "The fact is ObamaCare was a lie from the beginning.

'Keep you doctor, keep your plan!'

In his third and final tweet on the issue, Donald Trump called for unity just moments after bashing the Democratic party and one of its leaders.

"It is time for Republicans & Democrats to get together and come up with a healthcare plan that really works," Trump tweeted, while adding, "much less expensive & FAR BETTER!"

Moving forward

On Wednesday, Donald Trump announced that he would take the first steps to "repeal and replace" Obamacare on his first day in office.

Despite backlash from millions of Americans, Trump is going forward with his plan to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. The former host of "The Apprentice" will be sworn into office on January 20, and only time will tell what happens to Obamacare from that point forward.
