It was just last week that the Republican Party finally rolled out their alternative replacement to Obamacare. While there has been much push back, even from Republicans, Donald Trump claims that the party is unified.

Trump on health care

For eight years during the Obama administration, Republicans made opposing the Affordable Care Act their number one priority. During each midterm and general election, Republicans at a national, state, and local level would lash out against the health care law, vowing the take part in its repeal and replacement.

Despite this, the party never presented a viable alternative, even while voting in the House of Representatives to repeal the law on 60 different occasions. As lawmakers are set to repeal Obamacare once again, Donald Trump made sure to give his thoughts during a March 17 meeting with the media.

While speaking to reporters in the White House on Friday, Donald Trump did his best to ensure that the Republicans were all on the same page. "We are doing some incredible things. I want everyone to do know that I am 100 percent behind this," Trump said. "I want everyone to know that the press has not been speaking properly about how great this is going to be," he continued, before adding, "the press, as you know, in many ways, I call it the Fake News."

"The fake news is trying to say good things about it.

The fake media," Donald Trump said of the media's reporting of Obamacare. "There is no good news about Obamacare," the president noted, before saying, "Obamacare is dead."

Moving forward

While Donald Trump said that small changes have been made to get more Republicans on board, it's unknown if it will be enough to make it through the House, which will vote on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare on Thursday.
