It's no secret that Donald Trump and the Republican Party are no fans of the affordable care act. While the president was making yet another speech to bash Obamacare, Trump made an embarrassing mistake.

Trump on Obamacare

Just over a year after Barack Obama was sworn into office, he went on to sign Obamacare into law in January 2010. The landmark piece of legislation changed how millions of Americans received their health insurance, while creating one of the widest partisan divides in recent memory. During the entire time Obama was in office, Republicans made repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act their number one priority.

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare at any and all costs. However, since his upset general election win over Hilary Clinton last November, Trump and the Republicans in Congress have failed to get on the same page to deliver the American people a suitable alternative for health care. With the GOP plan on the back-burner, Trump is pushing to simply repeal Obamacare outright. As reported by Mediaite on June 24, Trump addressed the issue during a speech, but made a careless blunder while doing so.

While speaking about his thoughts on the Affordable Care Act, Donald Trump claimed that Obamacare has been bad for the United States for almost two decades, despite being signed into law just over seven years ago.

"For the past 17 years, Obamacare has wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent, hardworking Americans," Trump claimed. As expected, Trump's mistake was highlighted across social media.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Donald Trump made his Obamacare mistake, Twitter users were quick to take notice and fire back. "Trump begins: 'For the past 17 years, Obamacare has wreaked havoc...' It was passed seven years ago," Daniel Dale tweeted out.

"Apparently, even before Obama, there was OBAMACARE, wreaking havoc on the American health system," actor George Takei wrote.

"I'm no historian, but I think it's fake news to say Obamacare started 17 years ago," another social media user added.

"Watching Trump lie through his teeth about Obamacare makes me feel physically sick enough to want to go visit my excellent Obamacare doctor," Ben Wikler tweeted out. As the backlash continued, it was made clear that the opposition to Donald Trump was not going to end anytime soon. Over the next few weeks, it will be made more clear how the Trump administration and the United States handles health care moving forward.
