In a tough blow to the entire Republican Party, President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan were unable to gain enough support for their new health care bill to even hold a vote on the issue. After Trump issued an ultimatum to GOP lawmakers to at least hold a vote on the bill by Friday, the president voiced his frustration on Twitter.

The last two weeks have been a giant headache for Republicans after the party officially revealed their replacement for Obamacare called the American Health Care Act, or AHCA. The bill was received negatively by both Democrats and Republicans, with recent polls also showing the majority of the American people not pleased with the replacement offered.

The bill took an even greater turn to for the worst when the Congressional Budget Office predicted that the AHCA would result in 24 million people losing their insurance over the next decade. In recent days, Republicans in Congress having been abandoning the entire bill, with at least a dozen lawmakers changing their vote from a "yes" to a "no" after the president threatened them during a meeting earlier this week. On Thursday, Donald Trump issued another threat, demanding a vote on the bill on Friday or he would let Obamacare stay the law of the land. As seen on his Twitter account on March 23, the former host of 'The Apprentice" is still pushing for a vote.

Using the offical POTUS Twitter account, Donald Trump once again called for the repeal and replace of Obamacare, despite warning Republicans that he would keep it in place unless a floor vote was held before the weekend.

"Disastrous #Obamacare has led to higher costs & fewer options. It will only continue to get worse!," Trump tweeted out Thursday night, before adding, "We must #RepealANDReplace.

Donald Trump's tweet comes just an hour after Jake Sherman of Politico reported that the billionaire real estate mogul grew frustrated during a meeting with Republican lawmakers on Thursday.

Quoting Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Sherman tweeted that Trump was "done negotiating." Sherman followed up with another tweet, this time confirming that Trump's threat was that Republicans would be "stuck w Obamacare" if they didn't act on the bill in question.
