After the Republican Party unveiled their much anticipated Obamacare replacement, the new healthcare bill has already forced Trump to take to Twitter on the defensive.

In true Trump fashion, the President tweeted early Tuesday morning, very enthusiastically stating that “our wonderful new Healthcare Bill is now out for review and negotiation.” Trump then seized the opportunity to slam the signature healthcare bill of former President Barack Obama, exclaiming, “Obamacare is a complete and total disaster – is imploding fast!”

Despite Trump’s apparent enthusiasm, the healthcare bill has been the subject of scrutiny from virtually all sides. On Tuesday morning, Sen. Rand Paul and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham both heavily criticized the plan on “Fox & Friends.”

The opinions that Paul expressed in his television appearance very much echo those of other conservative Americans. He slammed the proposed ACA replacement as being “Obamacare lite” and subsequently claimed that he would oppose it, saying that it created a new “entitlement” program.

Graham criticized the plan on other grounds, however, saying that Trump failed to follow through on some of his most publicized campaign promises — reducing the cost of prescription drugs and to let Americans buy Insurance plans across state lines.

About an hour and a half after his first tweet, Trump took to Twitter yet again to directly address the “Fox & Friends” criticism. In essence, Trump vowed to fix the problems with the bill in “phase 2 & 3 of healthcare rollout.” As usual, Trump’s tweets consisted of vague promises and defensive language.
