One of the biggest talking points for the Republican Party over the last eight years has been their opposition to the affordable care act, or Obamacare. After failing to put forward a successful alternative, Donald Trump is still pushing back at the current law on the books.

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump followed in lockstep with the other Repubican candidates when he vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Trump, however, also promised to take steps to get rid of the current law during the the very start of his presidency. After two months in office, Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan worked together on an alternative, but it didn't go over as planned. While the criticism from Democrats and the left was expected, it was the backlash from members of his own party that caught the former host of "The Apprentice" off guard.

Trump clashed with members of the House Freedom Caucus who labeled the bill "Obamacare lite," in contrast to liberal critics who believed the bill was too conservative. Weeks after his plan failed, Trump is still not backing off his stance to repeal Obamacare, which was clear during an April 24 post on Twitter.

Taking to his official Twitter account on Monday afternoon, Donald Trump continued to talk up his health care proposal, while hitting back at the Affordable Care Act.

"If our healthcare plan is approved, you will see real healthcare and premiums will start tumbling down," Trump tweeted, before adding, "ObamaCare is in a Death Spiral!" Within moments after his message was posted to social media, opponents of the president didn't hold back their thoughts.

Instant backlash

In response to Donald Trump's tweet on Obamacare, the reaction came quickly.

"All I hear is you (& the rest of the GOP) whining about Obama's plan, but your prior one left 99% of his policies in place," entrepreneur William LeGate wrote on Twitter. "Your health care plan will render 25 million Americans uninsured," author Joe Papp pointed out.

"Honestly, Donald.

Instead of just shouting things, how about some honesty? How is throwing 25+ million people off their insurance helping?" writer Kelly Scaletta rhetorically wondered. "This is a lie. The ACA is not in a death spiral. We know because of the CBO report issued re: your disastrous first effort to gut our care," actor Benjamin Bryon Davis added.

"Get some new material you fucking piece of shit.

Only you and your triggered deplorable Trumpanzees believe your alt-facts," director Rod Blackhurst wrote. As the minutes passed, the negative reaction was clear, as social media continues to hit back against Donald Trump whose approval rating is reaching record lows.
