Earlier this week, the Republicans finally revealed their health care alternative that they hope will find its way onto the desk of Donald Trump. The bill has since received heavy backlash, but the president is still hopefully that he will be able to sign it into law.

Trump on Twitter

For the last eight year, the one talking point that almost all Republicans could agree on was their disdain for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump vowed to "repeal and replace" Obamacare, while promising to make it one of his top priorities.

With the Republican plan now in place, known as the American Health Care Act, opposition has followed. In addition to the expected backlash from Democrats and other liberals, even some Republicans have pushed back, including Sen. Rand Paul who has been at odds with House Speaker Paul Ryan over the issue. As seen on his Twitter account on March 11, Trump is still pushing forward.

In an attempt to appear unified, Donald Trump took to his social media account to attack Obamacare, while praising the Republican Party.

"We are making great progress with healthcare. ObamaCare is imploding and will only get worse," Trump wrote on Twitter early Saturday morning, before adding, "Republicans coming together to get job done!"

Donald Trump's tweet comes just 24 hours after the Washington Examiner reported that the former host of "The Apprentice" met with congressional Republicans and threatened those who publicly oppose the new Health Care Bill.

For the Republicans that don't stand by the bill in question, Trump reportedly threatened them with a potential primary challenge during the next election cycle.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump is expressing confidence in passing the health care bill, the opposition continues to grow. Groups like the AARP have warned against the bill becoming law, as has many non-profit organizations that support doctors and nurses.

Despite this, Republicans are expected to push the bill hard on the floor of the House and Senate, where Democrats will be waiting for them.
