After eight years of criticizing the Affordable Care Act, the Republican Party finally revealed their alternative. Backlash quickly followed, despite President Donald Trump offering his support.

Trump on health care

Not long after Barack Obama was elected as the President of the United States, his push for a change to the American health care system moved forward. In just over a year after his inauguration, Obama singed into law what would be commonly known as "Obamacare." Since the law has been put in place, it's been far from perfect, though it's helped millions of Americans gain access to affordable health insurance, many for the first time in their lives.

Republicans, however, have always pushed back, labeling Obamacare a government takeover that puts too much pressure on the back of the middle class. Donald Trump ran for president, in part, on repealing the law, which is now starting to take place in Washington. As seen on his Twitter account on March 9, the president is doing his best to put a positive spin on the health care roll-out.

"Despite what you hear in the press, healthcare is coming along great," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday afternoon. Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" went on to write, "We are talking to many groups and it will end in a beautiful picture!"

Despite Donald Trump's claims, some Republicans have even pushed back at the law in question.

Sen. Rand Paul has been vocal in his opposition, going as far as accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan of trying to "pull the wool over" Trump's eyes in selling him the replacement plan.

Instant reaction

In response to Donald Trump's tweet, social media users didn't hold back their thoughts.

" It will end with a picture of you smiling at 10 million Americans losing coverage and others getting sicker," Twitter user Tony Posnanski wrote. "Angel, this kind of vague grandstanding is getting a bit suspicious," TV writer Bess Kalb tweeted.

Others mocked Donald Trump for his use of the term "beautiful picture." Social media users responded by posting pictures of the painting "Scream" by artist Edvard Munch, while others took a more humorous approach and used images of "Beavis and Butt-Head" to describe Trump's message.
