President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday for the first time about the Republicans’ failure to bring their health care bill up for a vote in the House, telling Americans not to worry but that Obamacare would “explode.”
ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017
The tweet echoes what Trump has said about the Affordable Care Act in the past, often remarking in the process of trying to pass the American Health Care Act that the Republicans were doing Democrats a favor and maybe should just let Obamacare “implode” and make Democrats “own it.”
