On Friday, Donald Trump was forced to admit defeat after he pulled the Republican health care bill from the House floor due to lack of support. Despite the backlash, Trump has decided not to give up on the issue and voiced his thoughts on social media.

After eight years of opposing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, Republicans had their best chance at repealing and replacing the law with something of their own. With Donald Trump in the White House and majority-control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, Republicans were getting ready to erase former President Barack Obama's landmark piece of legislation, but it was not to be.

The American Health Care Act, as it was called, received negative reviews from Democrats, many Republicans, and the Congressional Budget Office who predicted over 24 million Americans would lose insurance over the next 10 years if it was signed into law. With even Republican lawmakers against it, the bill failed and Trump continued to blame Democrats for its defeat. As seen on his Twitter account on March 25, Trump is not done attacking Obamacare.

After he pulled the bill from even having a floor vote, Donald Trump said it was time to move on to other issues, most notably tax reform.

Even Paul Ryan admitted that it would be a long time before the party would be able to tackle health care again. While that still might be the case, the former host of "The Apprentice" is making sure people know that he is still not a fan of the Current Law.

"ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning, before adding, "Do not worry!" While the president continues to stick by his talking point that Obamacare is ready to "explode," it doesn't appear like he is going to do anything to prevent it outside of sending a message on social media.

Next step

With Obamacare here to stay for the foreseeable future, Republicans will have to bounce back from their national embarrassment after failing to repeal the law in question. Though the billionaire real estate mogul continues to talk a big game on Twitter, it's unlikely that anything more will come from it.
